Re-up: The Politics of Change and a Real Green New Deal (part 2), with Robin McAlpine of Common Weal
Manage episode 337389049 series 3011941
First, thanks for the heads-up, Joe!
Part two of our chat with Robin McAlpine is an experienced political strategist and founder of the Scottish think tank, Common Weal. (Again. it's a little profane at points, so be warned if you have kids about.)
Over the two episodes, we discuss the political landscape, the actual economics of change, how power is exercised in order to activate and inhibit change, and what plans to achieve a zero-impact society might actually look like.
