Monetary Finance in the Age of Corona Virus: Modern Monetary Theory and the Green New Deal
Monetary Finance in the Age of Corona Virus: Modern Monetary Theory and the Green New DealWednesday 30 Sep 2020
The world is going through a remarkable transformation in the aftermath of an unprecedented shut down of economies all over the globe.
Before the crisis there was already significant debate about how to pay for the costs associated with the transition to a low carbon environment. That debate has intensified as treasuries and central banks are scrambling to find ways to pay, not just for climate change policies, but also for social insurance to compensate the millions of workers who have been asked to sacrifice their livelihoods for the social good.
Rebuilding Macroeconomics will host a Webinar on Wednesday May 20th, 2020 from 16:00 to 19:30 UCT, to discuss these issues. The conference is organised and co-hosted by Professor Roger Farmer from the Management Team and Megan Greene of the Advisory Board.
If you would like to join us for the discussion please contact Richard Arnold (email@example.com) of Rebuilding Macroeconomics.
