In Berkeley Talks episode 172, Heather Boushey, a member of President Bidens Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) and chief economist to the Investing in America Cabinet, discusses Bidens plan to build a clean energy economy in the U.S.
The president has made clear, I feel like gazillions of times at this point, that his goal is to build an economy from the bottom up and middle out, began Boushey at the March 22 event at UC Berkeley. He wants an economy where growth is strong, sustainable. Where gains are broadly shared. Where the economy is stable, not just strong. Where our industries are globally competitive. Where we have a strong and vibrant middle class. Where we run our economy on clean energy and we bring down carbon emissions. And where we move beyond longstanding inequities.
And so, we at the CEA, we help the president as he is thinking about the economics behind how were going to do this. And so, todays conversation, what I want to spend the next little bit of time talking to you about, is about the presidents economic blueprint to reach his goals what motivated it, what it is, why we believe that the evidence shows us that itll be effective and what successes that were already seeing.
