In the wake of the worst recession in recent history, pre-eminent economist Jeffrey Sachs argues that American capitalism will return to the brink of collapse if measures aren’t taken to fix it. Join us for this special evening as Professor Sachs, in conversation with Andrew Ross Sorkin, argues that U.S. citizens must reach a consensus on government’s role in everyday life and on their basic values, and offers a bold and ambitious plan to change our economic system.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the author of The Price of Civilization.
