Of the $210 trillion, the plurality—$94 trillion—is the estimated cost of a Green New Deal, which a number of candidates have backed in some form or another. The remaining $116 trillion—roughly six times the United States’s annual Gross Domestic Product—is spread across a variety of policy proposals, from Andrew Yang’s Universal Basic Income to Marianne Williamson’s call for $200 to $500 billion in reparations for slavery.
