This Roosevelt Institute working paper argues that the Green New Deal is more internationalist than is commonly thought. Surveying its five goals, 14 projects, and 15 requirements, the author argues that the majority of them are explicitly international in scope or can be extended so that they have an international component.
It then proposes a ten-year suspension of trading rules and conversion of the trading system to enable a global Green New Deal to take root.
