Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 8 Apr 2024

4 Apr 2024 – The best solution for the world economy would be for China, USA and EU to maintain open trade and mutually agreed industrial policies.

The Urgency of Diplomacy
Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 25 Mar 2024

20 Mar 2024 – There has been a collapse of US diplomacy with Russia and China as Europe follows the Washington line. This creates an escalation that can lead to nuclear war. In the immortal words of JFK, “Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.”

Jeffrey D. Sachs and Sybil Fares – TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 Mar 2024

How the CIA Destabilizes the World
Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 19 Feb 2024

12 Feb 2024 – There are three basic problems with the CIA: its objectives, methods, and unaccountability. Its operational objectives are whatever the CIA or the President defines to be in the U.S. interest at a given time, irrespective of international or U.S. laws. Its methods are secretive and duplicitous.

Israel Cannot Hide from the International Court of Justice
Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 5 Feb 2024

29 Jan 2024 – It is easy to be cynical about the international rule of law. When the ICJ declared that Israel is committing genocide against Palestinians, the U.S. State Department said, “We continue to believe that allegations of genocide are unfounded and note the court did not make a finding about genocide or call for a ceasefire in its ruling…”

Saving Israel by Ending Its War in Gaza
Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 8 Jan 2024

US Foreign Policy Is a Scam Built on Corruption
Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 1 Jan 2024

26 Dec 2023 – In the past 20 years, every US foreign policy objective has failed. The Taliban returned to power in Afghanistan. Post-Saddam Iraq is dependent on Iran. Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad stayed in power. Libya fell into a protracted civil war after Gaddafi. Ukraine was bludgeoned by Russia in 2023 as the US secretly scuttles a peace agreement Russia-Ukraine in 2022.

Saving Israel and Palestine through the United Nations
Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Oct 2023

16 Oct 2023 – Following Hamas’ attacks on Israeli civilians, Israeli military strategists are threatening the ethnic cleansing of Gaza. This would be another Nakba, akin to the mass expulsion of Palestinians from their homes and land in 1948. If Israel commits war crimes in Gaza in the face of global calls for restraint, Israel would put its fundamental national security at risk.

Beyond the Neocon Debacle to Peace in Ukraine
Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Oct 2023

3 Oct 2023 – The neocons have created utter disasters in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, and now Ukraine.

NATO Admits That Ukraine War Is a War of NATO Expansion
Jeffrey D. Sachs – TRANSCEND Media Service, 25 Sep 2023

19 Sep 2023 – During the Vietnam War, the US government treated the public like a mushroom farm: keeping it in the dark and feeding it with manure.  The heroic Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers documenting the unrelenting US government lies.  A half century later, in the Ukraine War, the manure is piled even higher.

The US Economic War on China
Jeffrey D. Sachs | The New World Economy – TRANSCEND Media Service, 4 Sep 2023

31 Aug 2023 – Now the US is taking aim at China. Starting around 2015, US policy-makers came to view China as a threat rather than a trade partner due to China’s economic success. China’s economic rise really began to alarm US strategists when it announced in 2015 a “Made in China 2025” policy.

The West’s Dangerously Simple-Minded Narrative about Russia and China
Jeffrey D. Sachs | Common Dreams – TRANSCEND Media Service, 29 Aug 2022

23 Aug 2022 – The overwrought fear of China and Russia is sold to a Western public through manipulation of the facts. Europe should reflect on the fact that the non-enlargement of NATO and the implementation of the Minsk II agreements would have averted this awful war in Ukraine.

Jeffrey Sachs Debunks the West’s Narrative and Policy in Ukraine
Jeffrey D. Sachs | CNN - TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 May 2022

Jeffrey Sachs tears the entire US/NATO narrative apart. One wonders how much longer he will be invited to appear in Western mainstream media–he simply knows too much, has a macro perspective, speaks with passion, and even uses the ‘p’ word, “peace”: A true menace to the empire system.

America’s Unholy Crusade against China
Jeffrey D. Sachs | Project Syndicate - TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Aug 2020

5 Aug 2020 –

Last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered an anti-China speech that was extremist, simplistic, and dangerous. If biblical literalists like Pompeo remain in power past November, they could well bring the world to the brink of a war that they expect and perhaps even seek.

Donald Trump’s Dangerous China Illusions
Jeffrey D. Sachs - The Boston Globe, 13 Feb 2017

5 Feb 2017 – Today’s China offers a rude awakening for Americans who believe that the United States and the United States alone should dominate world power. Donald Trump seems to count himself among these neoconservatives, and China is their deepest phobia today… If Trump tries to provoke China into a new arms race or trade war, the results will be a huge debacle for the United States and a potential threat for the world.

The Fatal Expense of American Imperialism
Jeffrey D. Sachs – The Boston Globe, 7 Nov 2016

The far smarter approach will be to maintain America’s defensive capabilities but end its imperial pretensions. This, in practice, means cutting back on the far-flung network of military bases, ending wars of regime change, avoiding a new arms race (especially in next-generation nuclear weapons), and engaging China, India, Russia, and other regional powers in stepped-up diplomacy through the United Nations, especially through shared actions on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, including climate change, disease control, and global education.

The Global Economy’s Corporate Crime Wave
Jeffrey D. Sachs – Project Syndicate, 9 May 2011

Corporate corruption is out of control for two main reasons. First, big companies are now multinational, while governments remain national. Big companies are so financially powerful that governments are afraid to take them on. Second, companies are the major funders of political campaigns in places like the US, while politicians themselves are often part owners, or at least the silent beneficiaries of corporate profits. Roughly one-half of US Congressmen are millionaires, and many have close ties to companies even before they arrive in Congress.
