Can regulators avoid a green bubble after the pandemic?

So, the unanswered big question is how do those of us, the 99% or 95% (depending on which failed economist you choose to believe) convince ‘OUR’ legislators and president to save our asses and punish (jail time) those who screwed the country this time? Personally, my view is that the rich and very rich will get even richer and the middle
