In his work The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time, Jeffrey Sachs delineates a number of key variables to assure or sustain economic growth throughout the globe. These variables require a shift in attitude and approach from domination to relationship or, more specifically, an attitude or approach that equates to service. Servant Forge will examine these variables and seek to infuse a culture of service into the organizations and communities that desire economic and social justice. The variables for economic, social, and human development are as follows:

  • Urbanization
  • Understanding the advantages of high-density urban life
  • Social mobility and the power of market-based economies
  • Shift in gender roles
  • Family structure
  • Division of labor
