On the BBC podcast In the Balance hosted by Ed Butler, PBI Chair Ellen Brown recently participated in a debate on whether funding the ambitious Green New Deal introduced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could realistically be done. Ellen took the position that it could — without squeezing the taxpayers, shooting up the federal debt, or inflating prices — using local and federal public banks (including the Federal Reserve).
In the last two weeks, Ellen has also giving two presentations in zoom webinars covering the same topic, one for the New Economy Coalition and the other for the Economic Policy Institute’s EARN network. The EARN webinar was given jointly with former PBI chair Walt McRee. Slides for that presentation are available here.
