There are three big issues the world needs to tackle in order to make the future sustainable, according to professor Jeffrey Sachs, director of the SDSN. And he points out one country to be more likely than all others to reach its goals in time. “It’s actually not that hard to be prosperous, nice and sustainable”, he says.
