Ann Pettifor: Liberty Lecture - The Green New Deal
To protect the future of life on earth, we need to do more than just reimagine the economy – we have to change everything.
One of the seminal thinkers of the program that helped ignite the US Green New Deal campaign, Ann Pettifor explains how we can afford what we can do, and what we need to do, before it is too late. This is a radical, urgent manifesto that we must act on now.
