Jeffrey Sachs in conversation with David McWilliams
Jeffrey Sachs is undoubtedly one of the most important economists in the world today. His show in the Watergate Theatre at last year’s Kilkenomics sold out in record time, so we are delighted he’s coming back to the glorious surroundings of Kilkenny’s 13th Century St. Canice’s Cathedral.
Jeffrey is a global leader in sustainable development, senior UN advisor, bestselling author, and syndicated columnist whose monthly newspaper columns appear in more than 100 countries. He is the co-recipient of the 2015 Blue Planet Prize, the leading global prize for environmental leadership, and many other international awards and honours. He has twice been named among Time magazine’s 100 most influential world leaders and has been referred to by the New York Times, “probably the most important economist in the world”.
