Sustainable development focuses on the economy, society, and the environment when shaping policy. A holistic approach emphasizing economic, social, and environmental objectives is key. In focusing too much on economic growth, the United States has neglected rising economic inequality and dire environmental threats. Now, even growth is imperiled.
In this passionate and powerful book - part manifesto, part plan of action - Sachs dwells on issues that have captivated the nation and political debate, including infrastructure, trade deals, energy policy, the proper size and role of government, the national debt, and income inequality. Not only does he provide illuminating and accessible explanations of the forces at work in each case, but he also presents specific policy solutions.

If only our so called president could read.... this is such an accessible outline of what would create a better world for our children.... if only greed, corruption and racism was not in the way....
The JFK voice was not necessary...

A Focused Plan to move Forward
This book and it's reading is dry but important and concise. It criticizes the failures of the entire political spectrum and points towards how we can transcend today's toxic politics by defining easy to understand but ambitious goals that will help everyone in our country achieve prosperity and well-being. The reader's bad JFK impression was not necessary or appreciated.
