Welcome to TeX.sx! what do you mean should be left aligned? the title and author? (the text is usually left aligned except for paragraph indents.) – barbara beeton Dec 18 '12 at 17:22

The document looks like it was produced with one of the KOMA-script document classes, possibly scrartcl.

You raise a separate question: How does one typeset a document with left-justified (AKA ragged-right) text? For that, I suggest that you (i) load the package ragged2e with the document option set, i.e., issue the command \usepackage[document]{ragged2e} and (ii) issue the command \RaggedRight. Both commands should be inserted in the preamble of your document.
