The Calumet Roundtable: A Discussion with Jerry Harris
On this episode of "The Calumet Roundtable," host Dr. Lee Artz, Professor of Communication at Purdue University Calumet, and guest Dr. Jerry Harris, National Secretary of the Global Studies Association, discuss the idea of green capitalism. The green capitalism movement focuses on using the economic market to fix, or mediate, environmental problems such as global warming and dwindling natural resources. Harris argues that sustainable technologies could be a way to rejuvenate the economy. Artz and Harris also talk about the expansionary and recessionary cycles of capitalism and the problems green capitalism faces in each cycle. Lastly, they discuss questions of legitimacy: how green capitalism could help governments regain the trust of the public.
