End of poverty??

"Sachs has discovered that it’s more glamorous to be a paternalist wizard, solving the little people’s problems for them, than it is to help them, as in Bolivia, solve their problems for themselves. When he was advocating a Reagan-Thatcher program of spending cuts and smaller government in Latin America, the most Sachs could hope for was an appreciative notice in the Wall Street Journal. Now he hangs with Bono and goes off into the bush with Angelina Jolie."

Um artigo pertinente de Michael Knox Beran sobre a probreza, sobre Jeffrey Sachs e o seu "End of poverty" e sobre os paternalistas ocidentais com as suas celebridades à cabeça.
