Bjorn Lomborg accuses a recent report on the Sustainable Development Goals, led by Jeffrey D. Sachs, of selling short efforts by the US, which accounts for nearly 25% of all the money rich countries spend on direct development aid. But Jeffrey D. Sachs is adamant, citing America‚Äôs pollution, violence, and inequality, and points out that its spending on development aid, at just 0.18% of its Gross National Income, is roughly a quarter of the global target of 0.7% of GDP.
