Abstract: We use an econometrically estimated multi-region, multi-sector general equilibrium model of the world economy to examine the effects of using a system of internationally tradable emission permits to control world carbon dioxide emissions. We focus, in particular, on the effects of the system on flows of trade and international capital. Our results show that international trade and capital flows significantly alter projections of the domestic effects of the emissions mitigation policy, compared with analyses that ignore international capital flows, and that under some systems of international permit trading the United States is likely to become a significant permit seller, the opposite of conventional wisdom.
