Too often the argument “How can we possible pay for it?” stops any further discussion of implementing the Green New Deal. Join UUJEC for a webinar on how to change conventional thinking. A “can do” attitude can make impressive headway, both against global warming and the social, economic, political gridlock that stymies us.

Stephanie Kelton, author of The Deficit Myth: Modern Monetary Theory and the Birth of the People’s Economy, urges us to begin by figuring out the human, material and organizational resources we need and then see what is (surprisingly) already available with modest shifts of resources. Only then do we seek additional revenue taking care to avoid inflation.
UUJEC’s Dr. Dick Burkhart, mathematician and economic justice activist, will introduce Dr. Kelton’s video and help answer the questions it raises among us. Our country demonstrated the spectacular success of this straightforward method during WW II, even though it meant reallocating half our GDP per year. With the Green New Deal we can be far less rushed and more deliberate, taking less than one tenth per year, yet still create a life-saving legacy for future generations.
