    • Analysis of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Tax Proposals 

      Metcalf, Gilbert E.; Paltsev, Sergey.; Reilly, John M.; Jacoby, Henry D.; Holak, Jennifer (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2008-04)
      The U.S. Congress is considering a set of bills designed to limit the nation’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Several of these proposals call for a cap-and-trade system; others propose an emissions tax. This paper ...
    • Assessment of U.S. Cap-and-Trade Proposals 

      Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Jacoby, Henry D.; Gurgel, Angelo C.; Metcalf, Gilbert E.; e.a. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-04)
      The MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis model is applied to an assessment of a set of cap-and-trade proposals being considered by the U.S. Congress in spring 2007. The bills specify emissions reductions to be ...
    • Distributional Impacts of a U.S. Greenhouse Gas Policy: A General Equilibrium Analysis of Carbon Pricing 

      Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Metcalf, Gilbert E.; Rausch, Sebastian (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2009-11)
      We develop a new model of the U.S., the U.S. Regional Energy Policy (USREP) model that is resolved for large states and regions of the U.S. and by income class and apply the model to investigate a $15 per ton CO2 equivalent ...
    • Distributional Impacts of Carbon Pricing: A General Equilibrium Approach with Micro-Data for Households 

      Rausch, Sebastian; Metcalf, Gilbert E.; Reilly, John M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-07)
      Many policies to limit greenhouse gas emissions have at their core efforts to put a price on carbon emissions. Carbon pricing impacts households both by raising the cost of carbon intensive products and by changing factor ...
    • Distributional Implications of Alternative U.S. Greenhouse Gas Control Measures 

      Rausch, Sebastian; Metcalf, Gilbert E.; Reilly, John M.; Paltsev, Sergey (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2010-06)
      We analyze the distributional and efficiency impacts of different allowance allocation schemes for a national cap and trade system using the USREP model, a new recursive dynamic computable general equilibrium model of the ...
    • Energy Conservation in the United States: Understanding its Role in Climate Policy 

      Metcalf, Gilbert E. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2006-08)
      Efforts to reduce carbon emissions significantly will require considerable improvements in energy intensity, the ratio of energy consumption to economic activity. Improvements in energy intensity over the past thirty years ...
    • Federal Tax Policy Towards Energy 

      Metcalf, Gilbert E. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-01)
      On Aug. 8, 2005, President Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (PL 109-58). This was the first major piece of energy legislation enacted since 1992 following five years of Congressional efforts to pass energy ...
    • U.S. Greenhouse Gas Cap-and-Trade Proposals: Application of a Forward-Looking Computable General Equilibrium Model 

      Gurgel, Angelo C.; Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Metcalf, Gilbert E. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-06)
      We develop a forward-looking version of the MIT Emissions Prediction and Policy Analysis (EPPA) model, and apply it to examine the economic implications of proposals in the U.S. Congress to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) ...
