World Will Continue To Make Development Progress Without U.S. As Leader, Economist Jeffrey Sachs Says

The Guardian: Jeffrey Sachs: ‘The U.S. doesn’t lead the world any more’
“The U.S. is becoming a ‘rogue state,’ economist Jeffrey Sachs has told a Guardian audience. ‘But let’s not assume that everything is catastrophic right now.’ Sachs spoke at the Guardian’s annual UNGA seminar after seeing President Trump speak at the U.N., and said he was ‘shaken’ by what he had heard. … The Guardian’s annual event focused this year on scrutinizing the progress of the U.N.’s SDGs, two years after they were agreed [on] by 193 countries at the U.N.’s General Assembly in 2015…” (Leach, 9/28).
