Green Stimulus

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has led to deepening global economic crisis. Even as relief efforts accelerate and immediate economic rescue packages are assembled, longer-term economic recovery proposals have begun to circulate. Many of these incorporate the comprehensive, society-wide response to the climate crisis proposed by the Green New Deal. To assist scholars, students, and activists in tracking these discussions, the Buell Center has compiled a working resource, below and linked here. Assembled during the spring of 2020, it builds on calls for a progressive #GreenStimulus in the United States, adding real-time analyses of the global financial system at various levels, and documentation of fast moving facts-on-the-ground.
