Greening the Global Economy: Robert Pollin

December 2, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The New School for Social Research is proud to present Robert Pollin’s new book Greening the Global Economy.

Robert Pollin will give a lecture about his book, which will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Katrina vanden Heuvel (editor, and publisher of The Nation). The event will be followed by a reception. Copies of Greening the Global Economy will also be on sale at the event.

RSVPs are welcome but not required for attendance.

In Greening the Global Economy, Pollin offers a concrete solution to our global crisis. He takes on the widely-held belief that protecting the environment and expanding job opportunities are conflicting goals, and offers hard numbers and original research as well as studies from all points along the political spectrum (including the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the World Bank and McKinsey & Co.) to prove it wrong and counter with a bold solution: Pollin determines that “the global economy can achieve the emissions reduction target if most countries devote between 1.5 and 2% per year of GDP to energy efficiency and clean, low-emissions renewable energy sources.” What’s more, Pollin shows how working people in all regions of the globe will benefit – in many cases substantially – from the overall growth in job opportunities generated by clean energy investments.
