Цитаты Джеффри Сакс

„Главное, что подвело нас, это колоссальный разрыв между риторикой реформаторов и их реальными действиями... И, как мне кажется, российское руководство превзошло самые фантастические представления марксистов о капитализме: они сочли, что дело государства — служить узкому кругу капиталистов, перекачивая в их карманы как можно больше денег и поскорее. Это не шоковая терапия. Это злостная, предумышленная, хорошо продуманная акция, имеющая своей целью широкомасштабное перераспределение богатств в интересах узкого круга людей.“

— Джеффри Сакс
Один из разработчиков политики «шоковой терапии» в Боливии, Польше и России. С осени 1991 года по январь 1994-го был руководителем группы экономических советников президента России Бориса Ельцина. В 1998 году Сакс негативно оценил ряд действий российских реформаторов.

„It’s a tremendous blow to decency, to stability, it is a reason why then you have mass movements of refugees“

— Jeffrey D. Sachs
Context: ... It’s a tremendous blow to decency, to stability, it is a reason why then you have mass movements of refugees.... If we don’t hold together a multilateral system, we won’t hold together in the world. And when Trump goes to the UN – I was there when he gave the speech last month – and said, “I’m a patriot. Nobody’s going to tell the United States what to do,” it’s just horrifying, this kind of thinking, this bullying talk, this idea that one of the richest counties in the world, and in aggregate richer than any high-income country has ever been in history, has such distain for helping people in desperation. I barely recognise my country from what has happened over the last 30 years.

„Basic Survival goods are cheap, whereas narcissistic self-stimulation and social-display products are expensive. Living doesn’t cost much, but showing off does.“

— Jeffrey D. Sachs
Context: Though the United States is one of the world’s richest economies by per capita income, it ranks only around seventeenth in reported life satisfaction. It is superseded not only by the likely candidates of Finland, Norway, and Sweden, which all rank above the United States but also by less likely candidates such as Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. Indeed, one might surmise that it is health and longevity rather than income that give the biggest boost to reported life satisfaction. Since good health and longevity can be achieved at per capita income levels well below those of the United States, so too can life satisfaction. One marketing expert put it this way, with only slight exaggeration: Basic Survival goods are cheap, whereas narcissistic self-stimulation and social-display products are expensive. Living doesn’t cost much, but showing off does. The Price of Civilization: Reawakening American Virtue and Prosperity" The Price of Civilization, 2011

„The US plutocracy has declared war on sustainable development“

— Jeffrey D. Sachs
Context: The US plutocracy has declared war on sustainable development. Billionaires such as Charles and David Koch (oil and gas), Robert Mercer (finance), and Sheldon Adelson (casinos) play their politics for personal financial gain. They fund Republican politicians who promise to cut their taxes, deregulate their industries, and ignore the warnings of environmental science, especially climate science.

„Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany – are the countries with the largest so-called social welfare states. They are the most prosperous. They have the best social conditions. They report the highest quality of life“

— Jeffrey D. Sachs
Context: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany – are the countries with the largest so-called social welfare states. They are the most prosperous. They have the best social conditions. They report the highest quality of life... They have a degree of equality that is unmatched in other parts of the world. People work very hard, thank you, and labour force participation of women is the highest in those countries. Why? Because the social welfare state also means that there’s child care available, that there is maternity leave for the first nine months or 12 months to a mother raising a new child. And father’s leave. But after that there is enough support that a mother can go to work. And people do want to go to work. The idea that this has taken away the work incentive is actually the opposite.

„The intensity of these storms is terrifying. They are...the intensity is rising because of climate change. This isn’t about the future – it’s about right now.“

— Jeffrey D. Sachs
Context: The intensity of these storms is terrifying. They are... the intensity is rising because of climate change. This isn’t about the future – it’s about right now. And yet, a senator in Florida today said, “I don’t know where climate change comes from.” What is the matter with these people? How dare they either hold the office if they really don’t know, which is not the point, or they’re so corrupt in taking oil money that they pretend that they don’t know? And so, that’s the real story here. The governments are not representing you properly right now. Because the planet is facing profound dangers, we’re all at risk, and our governments need to act. And they promised that they would act, and they’re not acting right now. Climate, Welfare..., Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 15 October, 2018 http://www.abc.net.au/tv/qanda/txt/s4892252.htm

„We’re in the midst of horrendous danger, and it’s unfolding before our eyes, and still we are not acting. And the reason we’re not acting is big money and big companies, and it’s complete dishonesty“

— Jeffrey D. Sachs
Context: A wonderful chemist, Svante Arrhenius, in 1896, explained, actually, how things would unfold as CO2 rose in the atmosphere. The quantum mechanics have been understood, the basic dynamics have been understood, for many, many decades. One of my colleagues testified in US Congress, almost got it to precision, what would happen over the next 30 years. The fact of the matter is, now we’re in it. We’re in the midst of horrendous danger, and it’s unfolding before our eyes, and still we are not acting. And the reason we’re not acting is big money and big companies, and it’s complete dishonesty. And I would add your Mr Rupert Murdoch, who has made a mess of the media all over the world, by propounding nonsense in the tabloids and our Fox News, in the Wall Street Journal, telling lies at the service of the oil industry Climate, Welfare..., Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 15 October, 2018 http://www.abc.net.au/tv/qanda/txt/s4892252.htm

„Probably more than five million kids will die [this year] because they don’t have access to basic healthcare“

— Jeffrey D. Sachs
Context: I just undertook over the last nine months a project with the International Monetary Fund to look at the capacity of the poorest countries to keep their children in school, make sure there are vaccines, make sure that there is basic healthcare and so forth. And the result... that a poor country cannot do that on their own resources, but what it would take from the rich countries is tiny as a fraction of our resources... If we do not help... Probably more than five million kids will die [this year] because they don’t have access to basic healthcare that could be handled by... $40 per person in the rich world, for example. Even a few billionaires could take it on their own philanthropy, basically, and do this, but we’re not doing it...

„... History is written by the rich, and so the poor get blamed for everything.“
