Paradox, Possibility and Hope

We live in a time of profound paradox, but also profound possibility,
and profound hope.

The paradox is that this (extreme poverty) continues
in a world of vast wealth and knowledge.

The hope is the fact that we live in
an age of vast possibility.

If we choose correctly,
this kind of extreme poverty
could be ended
in our generation.

- Jeffrey Sachs, Economist, Director of the UN Millennium Project
