Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet

My erstwhile Harvard colleague Jeff Sachs has a new book.

Tyler Cowen's reaction:

this book never gave me the feeling that I had access to the mind of Jeffrey Sachs. It doesn't even read like a popularization. Imagine a smart and diligent but not insightful or self-reflective person doing a "color by numbers" version of what a Jeffrey Sachs book should read like.

Update: More from Tyler on Jeff's book.
