Questions for Jeffrey Sachs?

Next week, we’ll be recording a podcast episode with Professor Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and Special Advisor to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.

We’ll be talking about his new book: “The Price of Civilization”, which offers an account of what has gone wrong with America’s political and economic systems, and a roadmap for what Sachs believes to be the way forward. (Snippets of some recent Editorial Reviews below).

In advance of the recording, we’d like to hear from you:

If you have any questions you’d like to ask Professor Sachs, please post them below, or email them to [email protected], before Sunday, November 20th.



Editorial Reviews of The Price of Civilization:

“An important assessment of what ails America, and a must-read for policymakers.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Best known for advising postcommunist and impoverished countries on development strategies, economist Sachs (Common Wealth) takes on the cesspool of debt, backwardness, and corruption that is the United States in this hard-hitting brief for a humane economy… a must-read for every concerned citizen.“–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“There is no shortage of books on why laissez-faire is bad theory and dangerous practice. For a succinct, humane, and politically astute tour of the horizon, it’s hard to improve on Sachs’s The Price of Civilization: Reawakening American Virtue and Prosperity.”–The American Prospect
