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.“ 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.

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


„We need to defend the interests of those whom we've never met and never will.“

„The vast differences in power contributed to faulty social theories of these differences that are still with us today. When a society is economically dominant, it is easy for its members to assume that such dominance reflects a deeper superiority--whether religious, racial, genetic, cultural, or institutional--rather than an accident of timing or geography.“ The End of Poverty

„Similarly, 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 It is superseded not only by the likely candidates of Finland, Norway, and Sweden, which all rank above the United States but also by less likely candidates such as Costa Rica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 energy and daring is to resist the noes, until the final yes has been achieved.“

„There is no economic imperative that will condemn us to deplete our vital resource base, but neither is there an invisible hand that will prevent us from doing so.“ Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet

„The rich control our politics to a huge extend. In return they get tax cuts and deregulation. It's been and is an amazing ride for the rich.“


„Jamás alcanzaremos el objetivo de convergencia económica porque esta labor se vería frustrada por una catástrofe medioambiental. Muchos ecologistas afirman que, estamos condenados a reducir consecuentemente el crecimiento económico..“ Economía para un planeta abarrotado

„Debemos concentrarnos en el punto de partida: ofrecer a los más pobres del mundo bienes tan evidentes como las vacunas, antibióticos, los suplementos alimentarios, las variedades de semillas mejoradas, los fertilizantes, las carreteras, las perforaciones, las cañerías, los libros de textos y las enfermeras. esto no significa convertir a los pobres en seres dependientes de los regalos; es darle los insumos que compenses sus esfuerzos por mejorara su nivel de vida".“ Economía para un planeta abarrotado

„Deep down, if we really accept that their lives - African lives - are equal to ours, we would all be doing more to put the fire out. Its an uncomfortable truth.“ The End of Poverty

„Demasiados de nosotros pensamos "Que La Paz" es imposible. Demasiados pensamos que es irreal. Pero esta es una opinión peligrosa y derrotista. Nos lleva a pensar que la guerra es inevitable...“ Economía para un planeta abarrotado


„The Great Rupture At the beginning of the twentieth century, globalization was viewed as so inevitable that some thought war itself was probably passé, and certainly so irrational that no right-thinking leader in Europe would ever take his country to war. In 1910, a leading British pundit, Norman Angell, wrote The Great Illusion, which rightly argued that national economies had become so interdependent, so much part of a global division of labor, that war among the economic leaders had become unimaginably destructive. War, Angell warned, would so undermine the network of international trade that no military venture by a European power against another could conceivably lead to economic benefits for the aggressor. He surmised that war itself would cease once the costs and benefits of war were more clearly understood. Angell tremendously underestimated the irrationalities and social processes that lead to devastating outcomes, even when they make no sense.“ The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time

„We have entered a new era. Global society is interconnected as never before. [... ] I suggest that we have arrived in the Age of Sustainable Development.“ The Age of Sustainable Development

„La mala salud causa pobreza y la pobreza contribuye a empeorar la salud“ The End of Poverty

„The current situation reminds me too much of the fable of the
farmer whose chickens are dying. The local priest gives one remedy af-
ter another—prayers, potions, oaths—until all of the chickens are dead.
"Too bad," says the priest, "I had so many other good ideas.“
The End of Poverty
