In this inaugural episode of the Regulatory Transparency Project's Explainer podcast series, Ann Carlson and James Coleman discuss the merits and implications of the Green New Deal. 

What is the Green New Deal, what are its aims, and how might it achieve them? Is the proposal realistic? How does it compare to landmark pieces of environmental legislation from the past decades?

These and other questions are explored in this short podcast.
