Institute board member Ira Jackson to interview Jeffrey Sachs on his new book, ‘Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet’

Ira Jackson, dean of the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management and a board member of the Drucker Institute, will interview bestselling author Jeffrey D. Sachs on April 7 as part of the public lecture series ALOUD at the Los Angeles Central Library.

Their onstage conversation, which is set for 7 p.m., will focus on Sachs’s new book, Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet. Sachs’s work provides a vivid map of the road to sustainable and equitable global prosperity-and an augury of the global economic collapse that lies ahead if we don’t follow it. (For a sneak preview of some of the themes sure to be discussed that evening, please see Jackson’s recent column in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin by clicking here.)

Sachs, author of the bestseller The End of Poverty, is director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and special advisor to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon on the Millennium Development Goals, which include halving extreme poverty, halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education by 2015.
