Book Review Abstract

Marc Levinson of Independent Scholar reviews, "Good Green Jobs in a Global Economy: Making and Keeping New Industries in the United States" by David J. Hess. The Econlit abstract of this book begins: "Explores the politics of green energy policies and considers the prospect of a long-term transition toward an economy that has much lower levels of human impact on the environment. Discusses energy, manufacturing, and the changing global economy; green jobs and the green energy transition; green industrial policy and the 111th Congress; state governments and the greening of import substitution; the greening of regional industrial clusters; localist alternatives to the mainstream tradition; green transition coalitions and geographical unevenness; and after 2010—continued unevenness in the green transition.
