Tom Rand: Can Capitalism Stop Climate Change?

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Some argue that abandoning capitalism entirely could save the planet. Others, that we can preserve the status quo and tinker around the edges. Environmentalist Tom Rand thinks both are wrong - that we need to harness markets to avert climate catastrophe. And further, he believes a radical change is needed in how markets operate. He talks to Nam Kiwanuka about his new book, "The Case for Climate Capitalism: Economic Solutions for a Planet in Crisis."
