O-Lab affiliate Meredith Fowlie will be speaking at UC Davis on the real world application of market based environmental regulations.
About: Economists generally agree that carbon pricing should be a core component of any meaningful policy response to climate change. But this compelling economic idea has been difficult to translate into politically feasible policy. Over the past two decades, experimentation around the world has been progressing slowly and with mixed results. In many respects, California has been at the bleeding edge of these efforts. Fowlie will unpack some of the empirical evidence on carbon pricing impacts across a range of economic outcomes and focus on some important challenges.
