Watch Jeff Sachs on the Daily Show

Jeff Sachs will appear on the Daily Show with John Stewart this Tuesday March 18th at 11pm.

His new book, "Common Wealth: Economics for a Crowded Planet" will also come out in stores the same day.

Here are a couple of reviews:

Al Gore, Winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize and Former Vice President of the United States:

"Common Wealth explains the most basic economic reckoning that the world faces. We can address poverty, climate change, and environmental destruction at a very modest cost today with huge benefits for shared and sustainable prosperity and peace in the future, or we can duck the issues today and risk a potentially costly reckoning in later years. Despite the rearguard opposition of some vested interests, policies to help the world's poor and the global environment are in fact the very best economic bargains on the planet."

Kofi Annan, winner of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize and former secretary-general of the United Nations:

"Jeffrey Sachs never disappoints. With powerful illustrations and moving words, he describes what humanity must do if we are to share a common future on this planet. By making sense of economics as it affects the lives of people, this book is an excellent resource for all those who want to understand what changes the 21st century may bring."
