    Terry, while I agree with you that the SDGs are a first step, I don’t think that they offer too vague a prescription. Of course there is plenty of room for interpretation and much is to be worked out through implementation, but I would be very happy to live in the world of 2030 if it has substantially achieved the 17 goals and 169 specific internationally agreed targets.

    building a new world economy is well outside the scope of providing development aid as a way of reaching the long held goal of “the end of poverty”.

    that we would so corrupt a poverty eradication effort may mean that having failed to end poverty we have given up on meeting the needs of the poor and are ready to use this program for our own needs.
