Nowadays the drastic reduction of CO2 emissions is at the top of the US political agenda. In order to achieve this goal, the national policy approach must include a carbon-pricing policy. From carbon taxes to cap and trade mechanisms, economists and analysts are suggesting different carbon-pricing policy instruments. These two approaches entail different evalutions in terms of efficiency, cost-effectiveness and distributional equity. Which one of the two main alternatives is likely to be adopted in the forthcoming future?
This online seminar held by the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei and featuring Prof. R. Stavins, Professor of Energy and Economic Development at Harvard University, will try to discuss and predict the perspectives on US carbon-pricing policies. The seminar is introduced by Prof. Sergio Vergalli (University of Brescia).
