Ryan Briggs delved deeply into the mind of Jeff Sachs on Twitter and Kelsey Atherton collected it all in this awesome storify.
This is great stuff. Ryan gets Jeff to more or less say “evidence, you don’t need no stinkin’ evidence, I’m telling you I’m right”. Jeff also claims that econ jourrnal evidence doesn’t support him because the field of development economics is very weak!
Sachs is on a long strange trip, and I am actually getting worried for him in terms of where he may end up.
