From the Guardian yesterday:
Many still appear to think that the present crisis will be a temporary downturn. But it took a quarter-century for Wall Street to return to the levels of 1929 after the Great Crash, and the Japanese economic crisis has seen falling house prices for nearly two decades. The only conclusion we can draw from these appalling events is that we will need a massive reflation of the economy that generates huge job and business opportunities, while saving money by dramatically lessening carbon use. David Miliband and Hilary Benn reportedly urged such an approach for the pre-budget report in cabinet, but were rebuffed. As the economic slump drags on, this is no time for Adair Turner's cautious approach to the Green New Deal.
