The Green New Deal proposes a number of ambitious goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and addressing other environmental and social challenges. To transform these ideas into policy, though, vigorous economic analysis is required.
REMI invites you to join Senior Economist Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D. for a webinar presentation on Wednesday, May 1st from 2 to 3 p.m. (ET) titled “The Green New Deal: The Role of Analysis.”
For his presentation, Dr. Evangelakis will review the major points of the proposed Congressional resolution and establish the national- and state-level political context. He will consider different policies that could advance the Green New Deal’s goals – such as carbon taxes and promotion of hybrid cars – and discuss how to assess these ideas using dynamic economic analysis.
