A Policy Framework for Advancing Productive Investments and Clean Energy throughout the U.S. Economy
AbstractThis paper considers policies for promoting productive investments in the United States, especially as regards the project of building a clean energy economy. The four main policies examined are: 1) Expanding public investments throughout the economy and gaining the crowding-in benefits that will accrue from such investments; 2) Refocusing the successful, but ad hoc, U.S. model of industrial policies; 3) Advancing this agenda of public investments, industrial policy and cooperative/community ownership in ways that benefit all regions of the U.S. equitably; and 4) Promoting cooperative and community-based ownership forms, as alternatives to the private corporation.
