Diving into Keynesian economics
What is Keynesian economics?
In the 1930s, a guy named John Maynard Keynes coined

making different efforts
regarding pollution. Unfortunately, many companies and
businesses are involved with pollution and carbon emissions. So, they have this
tax called the green levy on pollution contributors. For example, we have taxes

that an investor or a trader can use when it comes to options. One of them
includes the bear put spread, which is also known as long put spread or debit
