Weston Roundtable Lecture - Barry Rabe

The Politics of Carbon Pricing

Event Details

Date
Thursday, October 10, 2019
Time
4:15-5:15 p.m.
Description
Carbon pricing in the form of carbon taxes or cap-and-trade has been broadly embraced by economists for decades as the best policy option for mitigating the threat of climate change. But carbon pricing has struggled politically in the United States and abroad. The talk will examine political challenges across each stage of the policy life-cycle, considering both the impediments to carbon pricing but also key design elements of the more successful and durable policies to date.
