Though he plans to speak to college students around the world, Sachs has made visiting campuses in the New York State a priority because he believes “New York has a great tradition of leading such problem-solving.” [2] Sachs lives in New York City with his wife Sonia Ehrlich Sachs, a pediatrician. [4] Dr. Sachs helped start what is perhaps the most serious effort to draw up a detailed road map for the energy transition: the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project, based in Paris and New York. [4]

In his capacity as a special adviser at the UN, Sachs has frequently met with foreign dignitaries and heads of state. [4] “Seven years has been a disaster, under Obama and continued under Trump,” Sachs also said. [6] Sachs has said that a key element to accomplishing this is raising aid from $65 billion in 2002 to $195 billion a year by 2015. [4] Sachs believes that the problems of today “require a new generation of leadership from young people with the training and commitment” to solve global problems. [2]

Sachs spent more than 20 years at Harvard and directed its Center for International Development. [15] By 1980, he was a Harvard professor, dashing off dozens of articles on economic principles—but the ideas Sachs discussed were theoretical and the problems he tackled were solved with fancy equations. [15] By the time Sachs arrived at Harvard College that fall, he said his head was “swimming with this question of why different places in the world have different economic systems.” [15] Due to the growing realities of a crowded planet, Sachs believes our global economic system is in distress and discusses the need for a new economic paradigm, one that is global, inclusive, cooperative and environmentally conscious. [29] Sachs believes that stopping these diseases will unleash the economic potential of some of the poorest countries. [15] Sachs is currently Director of both the Center for Sustainable Development, and the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network under the auspices of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. [30] Sachs marched on Moratorium Day, a day university students around the nation spent protesting the Vietnam War and calling for its end. [15] While many economists predict gloom and doom in the fight to end poverty in developing nations, Sachs truly believes it is possible. [15] Over the past two decades, his insight and intelligence have helped many nations in their struggles for stability, leading the New York Times Magazine to call Sachs “probably the most important economist in the world.” [15] Named by Time as one of the 100 most influential leaders in the world, Sachs has been a leading voice for economic development, environmental sustainability and poverty alleviation. [29] Sachs previously advised U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and has twice been named to Time magazine?s 100 most influential world leaders. [14] In 2004, Time magazine named Sachs one of the 100 most influential people in the world. [15]

A study by Sachs and the World Health Organization concluded that if the world’s richest countries raised $38 billion by 2015, they could save eight million lives per year—and expand one–third of the world’s prospects for prosperity. [15] Sachs has traveled to more than 100 countries and, to keep up with the demand for his advice, does daily video conferences. [15] “Countries cannot be squeezed to the bone to repay debts without provoking political and social upheaval,” Sachs told Esquire ‘s Richardson. [15] Sachs calls these three the diseases of poverty and believes they are a cause as well as a consequence of it. [15] To this end, Sachs helped the United Nations start a global fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. [15] Sachs is regularly consulted by world leaders such as United Nations General Kofi Annan. [15] Sachs tended to concentrate on the problems of the developed nations, such as finding a way to solve the 1973 United States energy crisis. [15] His father, Theodore Sachs, was an attorney whose life’s work centered on improving the working conditions for the labor force, such teachers, firefighters, and other public–sector workers. [15] According to Sachs, eradicating malaria, AIDS, and tuberculosis will be the key because if people are sick, they cannot work for their economies. [15] Before the Sachs lecture, there will be voter registration organized by the bipartisan Vote Everywhere coalition and Cornell student organizations. [14]

Professor Sachs served as the Director of the Earth Institute from 2002 to 2016. [30] A few years later, Russia asked for Sachs’ help, too, as have many other countries in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia, and Africa. [15]

Honorary degrees from St. Gallen University, Switzerland, 1990, Universidad del Pacifico, Peru, 1997, Lingnan College, Hong Kong, 1998, Varna Economics University, Bulgaria, 2000, Iona College of New York, 2000; Frank E. Seidman Award in Political Economy, 1991; Commander’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland, 1999; Bernhard Harms Prize, Kiel, Germany, 2000. [15] His peaceful parting from that university and kind words for Mr. Summers were in sharp contrast to the criticism that both Mr. Sachs and Mr. Stiglitz, equally renowned in international economics, leveled at Mr. Summers when he was treasury secretary in the Clinton administration. [18] Mr. Sachs, a frequent adviser to governments in the developing world and an early architect of Russian economic policy when Boris Yeltsin was leading the country into capitalism, comes to Columbia with the additional titles of professor in the Schools of Arts and Science, International and Public Affairs, and Public Health, commencing on July 1, when he finishes up at Harvard. [18] The newly recruited professor, Jeffrey D. Sachs, a prominent figure in international economics, had been at Harvard since he entered as a freshman 29 years ago. [18]

Mr. Crowe recruited Mr. Sachs away from Harvard, where he has been the director of its much smaller Center for International Development. [18] Sachs still serves as the director of the Center for Sustainable Development at the Earth Institute, Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development, and Professor of Health Policy and Management. [24] Sachs previously advised UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on both the Sustainable Development Goals and Millennium Development Goals, and UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on the Millennium Development Goals. He is Director of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network. [31] Sachs led the Institute for 14 years, during which time he also served as a special adviser to then-United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Millennium Development Goals. [24] Last December, Kofi Annan, the secretary-general of the United Nations, made Mr. Sachs a special adviser with the title of under-secretary general, giving him the task, as Mr. Sachs put it, of organizing an international response to poverty. [18] In a statement, Mr. Summers said that he would miss Mr. Sachs, but ”the opportunity he is pursuing at the United Nations and Columbia is a very special one.” [18] ”What Columbia is offering through the Earth Institute,” Mr. Sachs said, ”is a chance to pursue my commitment to sustainable economic development in the third world on a scale that does not exist at any other academic center in the world.” [18] The opportunities offered by Columbia could not be matched at Harvard, Mr. Sachs said, adding that he was leaving his alma mater reluctantly. [18] Now Mr. Sachs, 47, is joining Columbia with four titles, at a salary reported to be more than $300,000 a year, not counting benefits, which are still to be negotiated. [18]

”We are very interested in building up the economics department,” Mr. Rupp said, ”but the genius of Jeff Sachs is that he connects development economics with physical sciences and the biological sciences that the Earth Institute represents.” [18] According to a 2010 analysis by Michael Clemens of the Center for Global Development and Gabriel Demombynes of the World Bank, Sachs systematically overstates the impact of his work. [19] ”Larry has personally given me full support and my development agenda full support,” Mr. Sachs said. [18] Criticism from development experts didn’t bother Sachs. [19] With Mr. Summers taking the lead, the administration insisted during the Asian economic crisis in the late 1990’s that the suffering nations raise interest rates and cut government spending — austerity measures that in the view of Mr. Sachs and Mr. Stiglitz only increased the hardship and added to unemployment. [18] Sachs discusses the Easterlin paradox, a concept in ” happiness economics,” which notes that a higher level of a country’s per capita gross domestic product did not correlate with greater self-reported levels of happiness among citizens of a country. [13] In the 1980s and 1990s, Sachs advised the governments of several Latin American and Eastern European countries (including Bolivia, Poland, and Russia) on a wide range of issues, prompting The New York Times Magazine to call him “probably the most important economist in the world.” [32] Sachs has also authored three New York Times bestsellers and was awarded the Blue Planet Prize in 2015 for his contributions to solving global environmental problems. [24] Today, though, Sachs is best known for his obsession with the noble idea of ending global poverty “once and for all. [19] The suffering and death Sachs saw shocked him, and he began reading everything he could about poverty, devouring works on agriculture, nutrition, disease, education, and commerce, synthesizing what he’d learned for papers and reports. [19] SACHS HAD, TO A large extent, staked his career on the Millennium Villages—as had the economists who came to work for him. [19] There was some progress in the Millennium Villages—rising income, better health—but Sachs ignored the fact that similar progress had been recorded in many of the parts of Africa untouched by his project. [19] In the op-ed, titled Trump’s Insane Trade War, Sachs points to Trump’s policies, which he says are destroying “American global leadership, alliances, and interests.” [12] Over and over Sachs boasted that, with his plan, beating poverty wasn’t just doable, but easy. [19] SACHS BECAME OBSESSED WITH Africa during his first visit to the continent, a trip to Zambia in 1995, when the underfunded health care system had been totally overwhelmed by AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. [19] That new role was an additional reason for coming to New York, Mr. Sachs said. [18] Months before the book’s publication, Sachs began work on a project designed to put his ideas in action in a handful of villages in sub-Saharan Africa. [19]

Star economists rarely shift universities and now Columbia, offering top salaries, has lured two in its effort to rebuild its economics team and rank once again alongside Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, M.I.T. and the University of Chicago. [18] The institute also launched a Climate Change Adaptation Initiative, which brings together various parts of the institute working to fight climate change, developed six new courses in the Sustainability Management master?s program, and increased efforts to collaborate with other graduate and undergraduate schools across the University, including Columbia College, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and Barnard College. [24]

Nearly a year after Jeffrey Sachs–a world-renowned expert on economic development and poverty– stepped down from his position as director of Columbia?s Earth Institute, the University has yet to find his replacement. [24]

The chief title he will bear, director of Columbia’s Earth Institute, plays to Mr. Sachs’s strength as an expert in the economies of developing countries and an outspoken advocate of policies that alleviate third world poverty. [18] Its goal, according to Mr. Crowe and to George Rupp, Columbia’s president, is to integrate economics, natural sciences, environmental concerns, public health and similar disciplines. [18]

The institute, financed partly through federal subsidies, draws on the resources of other organizations at Columbia, among them the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. [18] We taught together, and while we have had disagreements, I left because he could not bring to Cambridge what Columbia and New York had to offer.” [18]
