Here they come again, neo-liberal corporate and state media in their newest offensive against anything progressive. The new target is the Green New Deal. Of course – as usual – the market will take care of climate change. Look at what “the market” is currently doing, not only to the environment. If only it were so easy. Apparently when it comes to carbon tax is just a matter of point and shoot. It’s almost as easy as video gaming according to the Washington Post.
But we know this is not true. At almost every level this logic fails. First of all, we know that pricing does not change demand perfectly. Alcohol and tobacco prove it.
