Today’s most urgent problems are fundamentally global. They require nothing less than concerted, planet wide action if we are to secure a long-term future. But humanity’s story has always been on a global scale. In The Ages of Globalization: Geography, Technology, and Institutions, Jeffrey D. Sachs, renowned economist and expert on sustainable development, turns to world history to shed light on how we can meet the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century.
In this virtual book launch David Lawler and Jeffrey D. Sachs discuss globalization in relation to the pandemic, the protests against racism, capitalism, sustainability, and the interconnection of global economies.
