Contents Notes
Foreword / Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. -- Reality check -- The dual crisis -- The fourth quadrant -- Eco-equity -- The green new deal -- The future is now -- The government question -- Buoyancy and hope -- Winning already, for better or worse -- Action items. The award-winning human rights activist and advisor to policy makers and presidential candidates delivers a 21st-century economic plan to rescue working-class Americans. Van Jones illustrates how we can invent and invest our way out of the pollution-based grey economy and into the healthy new green economy. Built by a broad coalition deeply rooted in the lives and struggles of ordinary people, this path has the practical benefit of both cutting energy prices and generating enough work to pull the U.S. economy out of its present death spiral.
