How to reach a just and lasting peace in Ukraine: Sachs and the IPB
Last month the International Peace Bureau (IPB), the world’s oldest and largest peace network, asked noted American writer Jeffrey Sachs for his ideas about how to end the war in Ukraine.
Jeffrey D. Sachs is an American economist, academic, public policy analyst, and former director of The Earth Institute at Columbia University, where he holds the title of University Professor. He is known for his work on sustainable development, economic development, and the fight to end poverty.
In 2021, Sachs was appointed by Pope Francis to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. Within this role, Sachs has consistently pushed for a peaceful solution to the war in Ukraine, as exhibited in the statement titled “Reaching a Just and Lasting Peace in Ukraine” published by of the Science and Ethics of Happiness Study Group in June 2022.

I am very disturbed by your promotion of a perverse pundit who admires authoritarian leaders and excuses Putin’s obscene aggression. Given Sach’s position in the church, he might contribute more to the advancement of peace by encouraging religious leaders in Russia to use their power over their flocks to push for peace and stop sucking up to Putin. How about shame, shame, shame on them?!? If the Pope ever lets him go, he could always pursue a career with Fox News.
I’m disappointed that you would broadcast this twisted perspective.
