From New Deal to Green New Deal

A lecture given by Reinhold Martin as part of the Spring 2020 Broadcast series on Tuesday, March 31st.

What can history teach the present? A world facing both pandemic and climate emergency now also faces a global economic crisis. Already, many proposals in the US for economic stimulus and recovery refer to the Depression-era New Deal, on which the most comprehensive proposal to combat climate change—the Green New Deal—is also based. Recognizing the urgency of addressing these compound crises in the short, medium, and long term, this lecture will consider examples of New Deal architecture and infrastructure as object lessons for a Green New Deal and beyond.
