Are Green Jobs A Myth?
Lexington at The Economist believes so:
Both presidential candidates last year vigorously promoted the notion that halting climate change will not merely be painless but will actually provide a huge boost to the economy. Kevin Hassett explains why this is nonsense. If politicians insist on pretending that everything is a free lunch, they should not be surprised if a) many voters don't believe them and b) the rest get angry when the bill arrives.
