Jeffrey Sachs's democratic credentials are about as solid as Jeffrey Dahmer's credentials as a good neighbor.

It's eerie to listen to a man who has done so much in the service of the corporatocracy now talking about the problem of the corporatocracy, a term coined by someone who bears a striking physical resemblance to Jeffrey Sachs. John Perkins has written about his own past service to the corporatocracy and encourages us to reject that American-led system.

Naomi Klein has some interesting things to say about Jeffrey Sachs in her book, "The Shock Doctrine."

I am aware that there is some controversy about whether Jeffrey Sachs is reformed. I hope he is. All I know is that the destruction he has helped bring about is enormous.
