About the book:

The Economist selected Global Crises, Global Solutions as one of the best books in 2004. 'A hugely sensible book about global health and environmental problems, based on the 'Copenhagen Consensus' project documented in The Economist. Its authors, eminent economists, recognise that the resources to tackle such problems are finite and need to be applied where they are most likely to be effective. Better, for instance, to spend resources on the immediate problem of AIDS in Africa than the more distant one of global warming. This book is a healthy antidote to the narrow views of single-issue pressure groups.' The Economist

'Global Crises, Global Solutions is, therefore, worthwhile in that it offers an economic perspective on important problems in global policy.' The Lancet

'Whether you agree or disagree with the Copenhagen Consensus' analysis or conclusions, Global Crises, Global Solutions provides a serious, yet accessible, springboard for further debate and discussion.' African Business

'& contains some of the best and most relevant policy research that social scientists have produced during the past few years.' Journal of Peace Research

'In the end, Global Crises, Global Solutions reports a brave and well-organised venture aimed at challenging our thinking about what matters most in the world.' Times Higher Education Supplement

'This report is an excellent, controversial and refreshing approach to global problems.' getAbstract
