We interviewed Jeffrey Sachs on the occasion of the book launch of the Italian edition of his “Building the New American Economy”. He reflected on the state of the affairs of the American economy during the first year of Trump presidency, covering international political economy, trade policies and some good reasons to look forward to the future.
Professor Sachs is one of the world’s foremost development economists and his book “Building the new American economy” has just been translated in Italian. In this interview, he explains why Trump has been “much worse” than he imagined and how the new President is getting it wrong on international trade (although he is right in pointing to the uneven distributional effects of globalization)
