Speaker(s): Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs
Chair: Professor Nava Ashraf

Recorded on 15 February 2017 at Old Theatre, Old Building

In his 2017 Robbins Lectures, Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs will argue for a new Moral Economics built firmly on the foundations of the new moral sciences. The goal of moral economics is to promote wellbeing. A core principle is the cultivation of individual and group virtue to help guide the behavior of both individuals and groups in the global society.

Lecture 3. Cultivating the Virtues of Globalization.

Global society is at once deeply interconnected and deeply divided across political, religious, class, ethnic, and linguistic lines. These divides not only threaten prosperity but even human survival. The third lecture considers the virtues needed for globalization and the ways to cultivate them.

The two other lectures that are part of this series are on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 February.
