In his profoundly important essay “World War II Lessons for a Green New Deal,” Martin Hart-Landsberg shows the way. In rich detail he describes the planning and politics of transformation, when the Roosevelt Administration took control of the U.S. state and from 1941 to 1944, overcoming considerable opposition from corporate America, to transform industry and build the most effective armed force in world history. The Old Mole’s Bill Resnick discusses with Hart-Landsberg how the planning and development must be participatory and democratic and take place at federal and local levels. Martin Hart-Landsberg is a professor emeritus of economics at Lewis and Clark College here in Portland. He’s written seven books on the process of economic development mostly in East Asia. He is also the chair of Portland Rising, a committee of Portland Jobs with Justice and he writes the blog Reports from the Economic Front.
