David Popp, professor of public administration and international affairs in the Maxwell School, was interviewed by The New York Times for the story “Biden’s Lesson From Past Green Stimulus Failures: Go Even Bigger.” With past experience with a “green jobs” stimulus package that was not totally successful, the story explains how President Biden has plans for more extensive environmental policies.
