Event Details:

Carbon pricing, in the form of a tax or cap-and-trade system, is a policy mechanism favored by economists to curb CO2 emissions and drive innovation towards clean technology. Despite its popularity among scholars, a national carbon price faces many political challenges. As the Biden Administration crafts its climate and infrastructure package, carbon pricing will need to be a critical piece of the puzzle. In the panel event, join four leading experts to learn about the principles, tradeoffs, and practical obstacles of setting a price on carbon  and mitigating the damages of climate change.

Speakers:

  • Lawrence Goulder, Shuzo Nishihara Professor of Environmental and Resource Economics
  • Frank Wolak, Holbrook Working Professor of Commodity Price Studies
  • John Weyant, Professor of Management Science and Engineering and Director of the Energy Modeling Forum
  • Robert Litterman, Founding Partner of Kepos Capital and member of the Board of Directors of the Climate Leadership Council
  • Moderator: Cathy Luo, class of 2023
