The economics of a Green New Deal
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?
Guest speakers include :
- Laurence Tubiana, European Climate Foundation; Sciences Po (tbc)
- Thomas Fricke, New Paradigm Initiative, European Climate Foundation
- Xavier Ragot, OFCE Sciences Po
