Sachs: "Sustainable development ... conveys a new and better approach to national problem solving"

Here is a link to an article in today's Boston Globe by Jeffrey Sachs.

The main points Sachs makes pertain to our ability to shape our economic future through investment in the pillars of development (education, health, social fairness, environmental quality). He highlights the UN SDG's and covers a lot of interesting ground with regard to contemporary economic fears.  I like that Sachs notes that economic growth and environmental protection are mutually supportive rather than mutually exclusive as is often argued. The follow-up articles should be interesting. Please help me keep an eye out for them.
