The Climate Pod

Sep 9, 2020

This week, Zach Carter, author of The Price of Peace: Money, Democracy and the Life of John Maynard Keynes, joins the show (14:58) for a wide-ranging and in-depth conversation on the legendary economist and what a Keynesian approach to green recovery should look like. Would Keynes support a Green New Deal? We dig into it. 

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss the record-setting heat in California and wildfire outbreaks across the Western states.
