American economist: We are on the brink of nuclear war because the US cannot keep its nose out of anyone's backyards

Today, not only among politicians and experts, but also among all people who follow at least a little the news, the hottest topic of discussion is the narrative that a nuclear catastrophe is about to break out in the world. Naturally, in the West, Moscow is accused of provocatively pushing the planet towards a global catastrophe. To this end, not at all embarrassed, they are pulling out and misrepresenting the words of our president, who does not get tired of repeating that Russia is categorically against even any hints about the possible use of not only nuclear weapons, but also a “dirty bomb”.


In this insane chorus of like-minded British prime minister Liz Truss, who publicly declared her readiness to press the “atomic button” without hesitation, fortunately, there are also statements of sane people. This time Jeffrey Sachs, a well-known American economist, professor and director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, expressed his opinion about who is really pushing the world to a nuclear catastrophe.

We're on the brink of nuclear war because the United States just can't keep its damn nose out of anyone's backyards, and we kept pushing for NATO expansion.

- quotes a sharp, but very accurate statement of the professor in his Telegram channel famous Russian journalist and TV presenter Vladimir Solovyov.

Earlier, Jeffrey Sachs, speaking at the forum of democracy, began to speak about the American political regime and again, without hesitation in his judgments, declared that America is “a semi-democratic hierarchical white-dominated racist society that seeks to preserve the privileges of the elite.” The professor added that it was like this at the dawn of its creation in the XNUMXth century, and it remains like this now. Describing the political culture in Russia, Sachs opined that it is no coincidence that President Vladimir Putin looks a lot like a tsar. This corresponds to the culture of power and traditions of Russia.

The opposition economist did not stop there and continued to "cut the truth," stating:

The United States has been the most violent country in the world since 1950.

After such a statement, the moderator of the discussion platform simply silenced the professor. But the audience in the hall met the honest words of Sachs with thunderous applause and shouts of approval.

In 2004 and 2005, Time magazine twice named Jeffrey Sachs among the 100 most influential world leaders. According to The Economist, he is one of the three most influential economists of the last decade.

Whether the West will listen to the opinion of such an authoritative person is a big question. It is possible that they will simply habitually hang the label of “Putin's agent” on him, as is customary to do with everyone whose opinion does not coincide with the official position of the ruling American elite.

    Which country is he the leader of? Maybe people, not leaders?
    In fact, of course, well done. Not in the eyebrow, but in the eye

        Not only.
        Reminds me of Martin Luther King.

        No, but leaders must lead
        for yourself, someone and somewhere. And who, besides students, is an economist leading, even a professor?
        I am in this sense

      I assume that he is included in the list of influential Jews of the world, and not world leaders.
      As for the rest, I don’t think that something threatens him for his “righteous” words, because he is one of the ideologists of the Sustainable Development Goals program, which differs from cannibalism only in a deceptive wrapper.
      He is also a "peacemaker". sad

    . So the minke whales are pulling a lot of "delicious" things to themselves.
    But this is unlikely to compensate for their losses if they do not rob insolently and without measure. Rob those who can, who have something to rob, who allows them this.

      They hope that the nuclear war will be limited to Europe, and they will again be in chocolate.

        Nothing new in general.
        The question is what will they succeed, and what will they break off with.
        It is not in vain that they say that for every tricky one, with a thread, there is a screw, with a reverse thread! So it will be.

          Exactly. Why invent something new if the old methods work.
          But I also think that this time they will break off.

            Perhaps, we do not have much where progress is noticeable, and even victories. And in the sphere of international politics, one can say that the process is underway. Maybe it is not, it is our merit, it just happened, the time has come!!! But it doesn't matter... we have to go, not checkers!

      I'll correct it a bit, if it does.
      But they, dogs, have enough pragmatism not to burrow too much. hi

        I heard a version / assertion that minke whales are so thought out, pragmatic that they won’t shear a ram, and then I’ll take off the skin from it, because this is the end result, then that’s it ...
        In my opinion, any versions have the right to be, but the one that will be implemented in real life is worth the wait and see ... it’s too much of all kinds of awkward, wild, strange, they began to make the same minke whales and there is no end in sight!
        In general, let's wait and see.

    Agent Putin drinks , welcome to the club. Anyone here in the self-proclaimed West who takes a stance of logic versus hysteria is branded as a Putin agent or a Kremlin troll army of angry croaking frogs.

      Excuse me, but could you express your idea in a simpler way, such as "for fools"?

    That's the dissonance.
    If Jeffrey Sachs had said this on a serious American resource, he would have been immediately buried.
    Solovyov, on the other hand, can grind anything - neither tongue nor conscience will fall off.

    It would be more correct to say that the USA sticks its nose in the wrong hole.
    Something local journalists and politicians are still slightly scolding American foreign policy, and more and more often, louder and tougher.
