A visão de Susan George em termos de crise financeira está centrada na necessidade de se instituir um controle democrático sobre o sistema financeiro: “In other words, what we need is democratic control over the financial system and to consider that money is not just a private matter, but also a public good. We can say that there is plenty of money out there, the problem is using it properly. I think that this kind of energy conversion and Keynesian green new deal would be a win-win situation. It could be a winner for ordinary citizens because it would create a huge pool of new jobs, good jobs, well paid, high-tech jobs, and also some unskilled low paid construction jobs.” (p.9)
