Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet - Jeffrey D. Sachs I saw an interview of Sachs a while back and was really impressed. I looked him up afterward and saw that he was known for this book and got really excited. I should have looked more closely at the subject matter. I've never bought into the overpopulation angle considering we have a declining birthrate. I still would have read Common Wealth if that had been my only problem! Jeffrey Sachs has the most pompous and patronizing writing voice I've come across yet. I only got a few pages into Common Wealth before I realized there was nothing I could learn from an author when I wanted to throw his own book at him.
