Summary/Abstract: The article discusses contemporary ideas on fighting extreme and mass poverty and in particular the assumptions of clinical economy, advanced by a prominent American economist, Jeffrey Sachs. By clinical economy he meant the rules to be included in the realization of the Millennium Development Goals. Sachs’s propositions are analyzed in the context of the desired nature of assistance activities by means of indication of chances for their practical implementation or deficits of the actions hitherto undertaken. The result is an attempt to answer the question: how realistic Jeffrey Sachs’s visions of realism of extreme poverty and famine elimination in the world are, and whether they remain within the reach of the contemporarily living generation.
