Join fellow Columbia alumni as the book club discusses The Price of Civilization by Jeffrey D. Sachs selected by Dr. Philip R. Liebson. Our host David Hartmann hopes you will join us for an evening of lively discussion.

In this book an economist discusses the economic inequities in this country and the steps needed for their removal and an approach to our theoretical moral values. According to Dr. Liebson, The Price of Civilization: “Could have been published in 2020 except for omission of the effects of the coronavirus. It takes to task the actions of both major parties in promulgating these inequities. Unlike many books on economics, the concepts Sacks explores can be understood by non-economists.”
