Season 2, Ep. 1

Kia ora!

Welcome back for the second series of What Comes After What Comes Next, Aotearoa New Zealand's number one podcast about how we tackle the climate crisis and renew our economies in a post-pandemic world. 

To kick off series two James catches up with "probably the most important economist in the world"* Professor Jeffrey Sachs.

*according to the New York Times, no less.

James chatted to Jeff about climate change, global trade, and geo-politics. So, you know, just a couple of light topics to get you into series two. Hope you enjoy it.

For those of you who do not know him, Professor Sachs is the Director of the Centre for Sustainable Development at Columbia University and over the course of his career has served as Special Advisor to three UN Secretaries-General.  

He has also authored some of the world’s most influential book on economics, development, and climate change, and counts President Biden and John Kerry as good friends.
