To protect the systems that sustain life on earth, we need to do more than just reimagine the economy – we have to change everything. From one of the original thinkers of the program that helped ignite the US Green New Deal campaign, Ann Pettifor explains how we can afford what we can do. We have done it before – and can do it again.

The Case for the Green New Deal makes the case that economic change is wholly possible, based on the understanding that finance, the economy and the ecosystem are all tightly bound together. The GND demands total de-carbonisation and a commitment to an economy based on fairness and social justice. It proposes a radical new understanding of the international monetary system, and shows that we can – and must – afford the overhaul of our own national systems, but also globally. It is a radical, urgent manifesto that we must act on now. Before it is too late.
