Join Professor Jeffrey Sachs and Professor Christopher Coyne, economist and author of ‘In Search of Monsters to Destroy: The Folly of American Empire and the Paths to Peace’, for an in-depth exploration of whether policymakers should adopt interventionist methods in foreign policy.

Together they discuss American imperialism and militaristic culture around the world, acknowledging that nonviolent approaches to global conflicts not only minimize violence but also promote cultures of peace across the globe. In addition, Professor Coyne explains how the former threatens liberal values and how alternative methods can preserve freedom and promote security among nations.
