      In wake of the worst recession in recent history, Dr. Sachs focuses on
      the United States and gives a startling account of the inadequacies of
      America-style capitalism. He asks the question “where do we go from
      here” and offers a bold plan of reforms relating to sustainable
      infrastructure, taxes, job training, etc.  that must be taken to avoid
      further damage.

      One of the most influential international economic advisors, Dr. Sachs
      was the Director of the UN Millennium Project from 2002-2006 and is
      the President and Co Founder of Millennium Promise Alliance, an
      organization dedicated to end extreme global poverty.

      Moderator, Michael Moritz has served on the boards of Google, PayPal
