U.S. Takes on Climate Change: What Does It Mean for Business?


After a long road of negotiations and what to many seemed like an unlikely outcome, the United States has finally passed a bill that will dedicate hundreds of billions of dollars to clean energy production in an effort to steer the country away from fossil fuels. The Inflation Reduction Act represents the biggest investment in green energy in U.S. history, which could completely overhaul U.S. manufacturing and incentivize more everyday consumers to shift to renewable energy sources. This case asks students to discuss the bill and forecast its impact.
