Brown Bag Series: Democracy Forum — Taxes, The Pentagon Black Budget & The Green New Deal with Nick Biddle
8 May, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
What is money and where does it come from? What is the Pentagon’s black budget and who pays for it? What is the Green New Deal and is it feasible? These three questions will be addressed with a focus on demonstrating how answers to them overlap. The perspective of the talk is that the Green New Deal is essentially mandatory for the environment, democracy, and perhaps even human survival. That said, the presentation seeks to carve out a strategy for implementing the Green New Deal within the current political context.
