The Corner

The Idealist

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Nina Munk, author of The Idealist: Jeffrey Sachs and the Quest to End Poverty. We discuss whether “ending poverty” is even possible, whether foreign aid accomplishes anything, and if people like Jeffrey Sachs are just a bunch of central planners.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
