Audiobook CD - 2013
Rate this:
A powerful portrayal of Jeffrey Sachs' grandiose quest to end extreme poverty in Africa. In 2006, Sachs, backed by tens of millions of donor dollars, launched the five-year Millennium Villages Project. Accepting hospitality from camel herders and smallhold farmers, and sharing in their struggles, Munk came to understand the on-the-ground issues challenging Sachs' one-size-fits-all approach to global poverty. "The Idealist" is the profound and moving story of what happened when the abstract theories of a brilliant, driven man met messy human reality.
