Green New Deal: Research, Proposals, Programs, Resolutions & Commentary

A little cleanup was in order for the site’s Green New Deal page. Research, proposals, programs, resolutions & commentary are now in chronological order. While tidying up, I took another look at Green New Deal for Europe and decided to list the names (and Twitter handles) of the many editors and contributors. In the name of useful redundancy, I added the link to the #GlobalMMT Commentary page. Readers may have noticed that material concerning fiscal and monetary policy for a nation not our own, can often be quite illuminating.

I’ll add more Twitter handles as I find them, perhaps with a little help from this Tweet.

The Role of Higher Education in Realizing a Green New Deal

In order to restore the U.S.public higher education system to a condition fit for purpose throughout the coming “Decade of the Green New Deal,” …decisive action must be taken early to rollback neoliberal reforms and restore social, economic, and environmental justice to college and university campuses, campus workers, and students.”

In what is hopefully an example of useful redundancy, I’ve also added to “How We Pay for It” (Under Resources) and Fadhel’s page (under Primary Sources).

Keeping up: @AOC, @LateNightSeth & Green New Deal

Early morning browsing led me to Late Nite with Seth Myers (@LateNightSeth) where Seth invites Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to lay out what the Green New Deal really is. Enjoy.

Over at Risk and Well Being (in a World of Changing Climate, Resources, Technology and Growth), Justin Bowles (@riskwellbeing) posted The Green New Deal and Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). Following his advice, I set out to read House Resolution 109 “Recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal.” Found a reliable link here

Both are added to the growing body of links on our Green New Deal page.
