The Green New Deal: Ann Pettifor and Grace Blakeley

London Review Bookshop

Is social justice compatible with environmental responsibility? Economist Ann Pettifor, advisor on economic and environmental policy to both Jeremy Corbyn in the UK and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the US, argues in her latest book The Case for the Green New Deal (Verso) that not only are they compatible, they are inseparable – the two key components in the struggle to transform society and survive ecological disaster.

She was in conversation about her ideas with Grace Blakeley, economics commentator at the New Statesman and author of Stolen: How to Save the World from Financialisation.
