Workshop - First Paris New Paradigm Workshop

 
   
   

Driven by major debates in the US and growing popular pressure for climate action, the economic and political potential of a ‘Green New Deal’ is generating a lot of excitement on both sides of the Atlantic. But there is little clarity over what people mean by a Green New Deal, and therefore over its economic impact. The Workshop will delve into the macroeconomics of a deal. How broad must it be to be really effective and how could it be financed? How can the necessary political coalition be built to push it forward? And what can we learn from Roosevelt’s New Deal and the role it played in shaping the post-war paradigm?
