What is the Green New Deal and how can we afford it?

To protect the future of life on earth, we need to do more than just reimagine the economy—we have to change everything. One of the seminal thinkers of the program that helped ignite the US Green New Deal campaign, Ann Pettifor explains how we can afford what we can do, and what we need to do, before it is too late.

The Case for the Green New Deal argues that economic change is wholly possible, based on the understanding that finance, the economy and the ecosystem are all tightly bound together. The GND demands total decarbonization and a commitment to an economy based on fairness and social justice. It proposes a radical new understanding of the international monetary system. Pettifor offers a roadmap for financial reform both nationally and globally, taking the economy back from the 1%. This is a radical, urgent manifesto that we must act on now.

About the Author:

Ann Pettifor is the Director of Prime (Policy Research in Macroeconomics) and a Fellow of the New Economics Foundation. She is known for her leadership of the Jubilee 2000 campaign.

She is the author of The Real World Economic Outlook and The Coming First World Debt Crisis and in 2008 co-author of The Green New Deal. She lives in London

Review:

“Demanding drastic, even impossible change—as ... Pettifor [does]—may just be a way to ensure that something is done.”
—Jonathan Ford, Financial Times

“Clear, concise, and well put ... a crash course in the economics and history of the policy bundle, as well as a roadmap to implementing it.”
Bright Green

“Concise, erudite and thought-provoking”
Quietus

“This awareness-raising contribution to an important debate should expand our understanding of what’s possible and encourage us to take action.”
Labour Briefing

The Case for the Green New Deal succinctly explains what the GND is, where the idea came from, why it’s necessary, and how to make it happen. As an economist and expert in monetary theory, Pettifor is uniquely well placed to describe how the GND can be funded.”

Book Description Verso Books, United Kingdom, 2019. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The GND has the potential of becoming one of the largest global campaigns of our times, and it started in Ann Pettifor's flat. In 2008, the first Green New Deal was devised by Pettifor and a group of English economist and thinkers, but was ignored within the tumults of the financial crash. A decade later, the ideas was revived within the democratic socialists in the US, forefront by Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. The Green New Deal demands a radical and urgent reversal of the current state of the global economy: including total de-carbonisation and a commitment to fairness and social justice. Critics on all sides have been quick to observe that the GND is a pipe dream that could never be implemented, and would cost the earth. But, as Ann Pettifor shows, we need to rethink the function of money, and how it works within the global system. How can we bail out the banks but not the planet? We have to stop thinking about the imperative of economic growth-nothing grows for ever. The program will be a long term project but it needs to start immediately.
