The Price of Civilization - Jeffrey Sachs
This book is superb and I highly recommend to all. It reads almost like a scientific, well-argued manifesto of the Occupy movement (Sachs has given at least two great speeches to the protesters). Very smart, thought-provoking, and valuable.
I was 24, and this is the condition: pretending to know everything, while knowing nothing; pretending to be sure, while being always uncertain.
But before we face experience, that miserable enemy, let us have some innocence, just for a while.
- Martin Amis, “Experience”
