Harry Clarke ()
CCEP Working Papers from Centre for Climate Economics & Policy, Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University
This paper asks three questions. First, how do carbon taxes drive economic and environmental outcomes? Second, what is the appropriate economic base on which carbon taxes should be levied? Finally, how well does a carbon tax deliver economic-environmental outcomes compared to a comparable emissions trading scheme.
