View Resource Are Cap-and-Trade Programs more Environmentally Effective than Conventional Regulation?

This working paper, created by Denny A.

The paper focuses on whether these policies have been effective in addressing...

View Resource Absolute vs. Intensity-Based Emission Caps

As governments begin to consider regulation of greenhouse gases, many are turning to market-based initiatives. Such programs assign emitters a certain share of emissions, and allow them to trade for emissions rights in a market. Emission shares can be distributed strictly as a certain amount of carbon, or they can be assigned as a certain amount of pollutant per unit output or input. This...

View Resource Induced Technical Change and the Cost of Climate Policy

This paper provides an economic analysis of a specific climate change policy: a carbon tax. The analysis attempts to gauge the potential for a carbon tax to create an incentive for research and development, and subsequently lower the cost of technologies responding to climate change.
