The Green New Deal

Benjamin Zycher
American Enterprise Institute

Benjamin Zycher, economics and public policy scholar at American Enterprise Institute: The Green New Deal (GND) is a set of policy proposals, some more concrete than others, with the central advertised goal of ameliorating a purported climate crisis by implementing policies that would reduce US greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to zero, or to “net zero,” by 2050. The expansion of employment under the GND—in particular the expansion of “green” employment—will prove illusory. The resource “sustainability” rationale for the GND is fundamentally incorrect analytically.
