Time Horizons: Philosopher Edition

Matt Yglesias links to a book by one of his former professors. FLG, interested, researches further. Discovers this passage on Wikipedia:
his views on the efficacy of organizations such as UNICEF and OXFAM are notable for their duality: on the one hand he seems to appreciate the immediate action these organizations provide while on the other hand he points out the long-term futility of such intervention. His focus is, instead, on the long-term political and economic development of nations according to the Western capitalist/ democratic model, an approach that relies on continued growth in the “marketplace” that is the capital-driven modern world.
