Climate Change Impacts and Limited Market-driven Adaptation

Review of Environment, Energy and Economics - Re3, 2014
This article addresses one specific criticism that can be raised against economic climate change impact assessments conducted with Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models: that of overly optimistic assumptions about markets’ ability to react to climate change induced shocks, i.e. market-driven adaptation. These models indeed usually assume frictionless and instantaneous adjustments to a new equilibrium. We demonstrate that these frictions could increase climate change costs from 0.64% to 0.87% of Gross World Product (GWP).
