The Russian drama began at the end of 1991,

economic, financial, social and political challenge.
- Jeffrey Sachs

In the early 1990s, when a lot of the developing world

- Jeffrey Sachs

- Jeffrey Sachs

Typically, it means money that's coming due within 30 to 90 days.
- Jeffrey Sachs

In Asia, a lot of successful economies that had been
living on their own saving,

economy as an integrated piece of the world system,
that it would benefit from that with economic growth.
I concur with that basic view.
- Jeffrey Sachs

Unfortunately, the real focus in this country has not

will just work out abroad aren't really coming to pass.
- Jeffrey Sachs

The Sweetest Strawberry:
A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger.
He fled, the tiger after him.
Coming to a precipice,
he caught hold of the root of a wild vine
and swung himself over the edge.
The tiger sniffed at him from above.
Trembling, the man looked down to where,
far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him.
Only the vine sustained him.
Two mice, one white and one black,
little by little started to gnaw away the vine.
The man then saw a luscious strawberry near him.
Grasping the vine with one hand,
he plucked the strawberry with the other.
How sweet it tasted.
- Zen Koan
