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.

    MONETARY POLICY, ASSET INFLATION AND INEQUALITY

    Thu, June 17, 2021 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT


    In this webinar, Pr. Louis Philippe Rochon takes a fresh look at the links between monetary policy, asset bubbles and inequality.

    It is often argued that asset inflation and real estate bubbles are the result of accommodative monetary policy: low interest rates encourages borrowing for speculative purposes.

    Undoubtedly, this has been the case as an increasing part of borrowing is not meant for productive purposes.

    In this webinar, Prof. Rochon will argue that this is a misreading of the facts. Rather than laying the blame at the feet of low interest rates, bubbles may be caused by growing inequality as well as by the excessive deregulation.

    Learn why governments need to re-regulate borrowing and, introduce such policies as financial transaction taxes to prevent asset inflation and specifically real estate bubbles.

    A link to join the online seminar will be provided via email before the start of the webinar.
