The determination of long-term goals for climate policy, or of near-term mitigation effort, requires a shared conception among nations of what is at stake. Unfortunately, because of different attitudes to risk, problems ...
Greenhouse Gas Mitigation as a Structural Change and Policies that Offset Its Depressing Effects
(MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2006-07)
The current economic modeling of emissions limitations does not embody economic features that are likely to be particularly important in the short term, yet the politics of limiting greenhouse gas emissions are often ...
Directed Technical Change and Climate Policy
(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 ...
