Altruism, Ethics, and the Global Economy: A Discussion with Matthieu Ricard and Jeffrey Sachs

Altruism is Matthieu Ricard’s new masterwork, presenting a global vision based on decades of personal experience and insight; a roadmap for the 21st century.

Ricard demonstrates how altruism is not an abstract ideal, but an essential dimension of our nature that everyone can cultivate. He explains how it is the vital thread that can answer the main challenges of our time: economic inequality, life satisfaction, and environmental sustainability. Altruism was a bestseller in France and will be published in the U.S. in June in the USA by Little Brown.

“Matthieu Ricard brings together ancient wisdom and scientific insights to put forth a truly compelling global vision for the 21st century, and his voice, his message and his wisdom are greatly needed.” — Arianna Huffington
