It’s Time for Strong Government Intervention in the Economy

This short piece in the MIT Technology Review is a very good read, worthwhile for anyone wondering how we’re going to solve our most pressing social and environmental issues.

I support strong government involvement (via targeted funding) in directing the economy towards solving our most serious problems, including climate change, the broader problem of transitioning to cleaner energy, improving our education system, reducing wealth inequality, and reducing violence. This article covers this topic, its potential and its historical pitfalls, well.
