A global war on poverty

This morning a faculty member in the business school mentioned Jeffrey Sachs and his proposal for a global war on poverty. Then I check Instapundit and Sachs again. Instapundit links to Daniel Drezner, a libertarian at UChicago, for a discussion. Drezner in turn gives us the key website for Sachs at the End of Poverty website.

This is a very important subject which will get more attention (I hope) in a later post. Constructive thinking about poverty is badly needed. It is encouraging that Sachs takes free markets seriously. Maybe we need to put a copy of Sachs' book on Condi's desk!
