Sachs gives a startling account of the inadequacies of U.S.-style capitalism. He offers a bold plan of sustainable infrastructure, taxes, job training that he says must be taken to avoid further damage. One of the most influential international economic advisors, Sachs was the director of the UN Millennium Project and is the president and co-founder of Millennium Promise Alliance.

and Jeffrey Sachs interviewed by Charlie Rose

"At the root of America's economic crisis lies a moral crisis: the decline of civic virtue among America's political and economic elite. A society of markets, laws, and elections is not enough if the rich and powerful fail to behave with respect, honesty, and compassion toward the rest of society and toward the world. America has developed the world's most competitive market society but has squandered its civic virtue along the way. Without resorting and ethos of social responsibility, there can be no meaningful and sustained economic recovery." ~ Jeffrey D. Sachs, Director, Earth Institute, Columbia University, Special UN Advisor; Author, The Price of Civilization
