Green Economics

Keith is critical of conventional market economics, and believes that the competitive obsession with endless ‘growth’ and measures of GDP is unrealistic and unsustainable. Keith brings to the European Parliament his substantial experience in developing regional economic policy and fighting against the privatisation of public services. The Green MEP is calling for a package of low-carbon innovation strategies and an aggressive expansion of energy efficiency measures, energy reduction and renewables in order to create new green jobs for the South East, whilst also meeting our future energy needs.
