The Age of Sustainable Development
This month, Jeffrey D. Sachs joins the long list of Henry George Distinguished Speakers to grace the Schimmel stage.
On Thursday, November 21, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Jeffrey D. Sachs will come to Pace as part of the 13th Annual Henry George Symposium to address The Age of Sustainable Development from an economist’s perspective.
American economist Jeffrey D. Sachs is the director of The Earth Institute, Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, and Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University. He is Special Adviser to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on the Millennium Development Goals, having held the same position under former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. He is also the Director of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network and the Co-Founder and Chief Strategist of Millennium Promise Alliance in addition to being director of the Millennium Villages Project. He has authored three New York Times bestsellers in the last seven years.
Past Henry George symposia have drawn such distinguished–and controversial–economists as Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate in Economics and Professor of Economics and Finance at Columbia University; William J. Baumol, noted Professor of Economics at New York University and Professor Emeritus at Princeton University; Robert Engle, Nobel Laureate in Economics and professor in the Management of Financial Services at NYU; and most recent Nobel Laureate of Economics Yale professor Robert Shiller.
