    • Directed Technical Change and Climate Policy 

      Otto, Vincent M.; Loeschel, Andreas; Reilly, John M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2006-04)
      This paper studies the cost effectiveness of climate policy if there are technology externalities. For this purpose, we develop a forward-looking CGE model that captures empirical links between CO2 emissions associated ...
