The Economics of Climate Policy
Charles Kolstad and
Chapter 30 in Handbook of Environmental Economics, 2005, vol. 3, pp 1561-1618 from Elsevier
Economics has played an increasingly important role in shaping policy, in the United States and elsewhere. This chapter reviews some of the dimensions of the economic approach to analyzing, understanding, and developing solutions to the problem of climate change. We then turn to the issue of designing regulatory instruments to control the problem. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the political economy of greenhouse gas control in an international context.
