From the 'yellow vests' to hope of the Green New DealIt's old news that large segments of society have become deeply unhappy with what they see as "the establishment," especially the political class. The promise of the Green New Deal that is now being championed by progressives in the United States gets both of these elements right.The Green New Deal is premised on three observations: First, there are unutilized and underutilized resources -- especially human talent -- that can be used effectively. Third, a good environment is an essential part of human well-being, today and in the future.Almost 90 years ago, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt responded to the Great Depression with his New Deal, a bold package of reforms that touched almost every aspect of the American economy.So, too, for a Green New Deal: It can provide public transportation, linking people with jobs, and retrofit the economy to meet the challenge of climate change.The Green New Deal sends a positive message of what government can do, for this generation of citizens and the next.The Green New Deal will have to be broadened, and this is especially true in those countries like the U.S., where many ordinary citizens lack access to good education, adequate health care or decent housing.
