The Green New Deal – What is it and How do we Pay for it?

The Green New Deal – What is it and How do we Par for it?

Join us for an interactive panel on the Green New Deal – the bold and radical plan to transform the American economy.

A radical plan to decarbonize our economy and address climate change commonly known as the New Green Deal is becoming a hot public policy issue in America. But questions as to what the Green New Deal really is, and whether we could afford it; do not always command easy answers and generally tend to arouse the most passionate controversies.

This panel of distinguished speakers will present three different takes on the Green New Deal and, ask whether it holds the potential for transitioning the US economy towards a greener and more sustainable future.

    This talk continues our analysis of macroeconomics begun in January with our lecture “The Fed Has Lost Control of the Money Supply.” Just as the previous talk explored emergent properties in the Fed’s management of the money supply which were evident to a Semantic Analyst but were not otherwise perceived by conventional macroeconomics, this talk will focus on similar emergent properties of the Fed’s efforts to control unemployment.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.

    Instructor: Dr. W. E. Perry
