Climate change policy after Kyoto : a blueprint for a realistic approach by Warwick J McKibbin( )

17 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1992 the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro produced a landmark treaty on climate change that proposed stabilizing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. The agreement ratified by more than 186 countries, including the United States, prompted numerous subsequent rounds of climate negotiations aimed at reducing emissions from industrialized countries. Yet the treaty has had little measurable impact, and its implementing agreement, the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, has been rejected by the United States and spurned by developing countries." "According to Warwick J. McKibbin and Peter J. Wilcoxen, the international stalemate in climate negotiations stems from a fundamental flaw in the Kyoto Protocol; the treaty's lack of cost controls. Climate policy that lacks cost controls will never be ratified and implemented by the United States or many other developed countries."
Double dividend : environmental taxes and fiscal reform in the United States by Dale W Jorgenson( )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le 1er rabat de jaquette indique : "Energy utilization, especially from fossil fuels, creates hidden costs in the form of pollution and environmental damages. The costs are well documented but are hidden in the sense that they occur outside the market, are not reflected in market prices, and are not taken into account by energy users. Double Dividend presents a novel method for designing environmental taxes that correct market prices so that they reflect the true cost of energy. The resulting revenue can be used in reducing the burden of the overall tax system and improving the performance of the economy, creating the double dividend of the title. The authors simulate the impact of environmental taxes on the U.S. economy using their Intertemporal General Equilibrium Model (IGEM). This highly innovative model incorporates expectations about future prices and policies. The model is estimated econometrically from an extensive 50-year dataset to incorporate the heterogeneity of producers and consumers. This approach generates confidence intervals for the outcomes of changes in economic policies, a new feature for models used in analyzing energy and environmental policies. These outcomes include the welfare impacts on individual households, distinguished by demographic characteristics, and for society as a whole, decomposed between efficiency and equity."
Information disclosure policy : do states' data processing efforts help more than the information disclosure itself? by Hyunhoe Bae( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) was expected to reduce health risks stemming from emissions of hazardous chemicals by increasing public pressure on polluters. However, it is a massive and complex dataset, requiring significant expertise to interpret in its raw form. State governments have attempted to mitigate the TRI's information processing burden on the public via two types of policies: (1) selection and dissemination of raw TRI data for plants within the state, and (2) data processing activities producing more refined reports and analysis. This study assesses the effectiveness of those policies. Our results show that state-level data dissemination efforts lowered the total number of pounds of chemicals released, but had little effect on health risks. State-level data processing efforts, in contrast, did lead to significant reductions in health risks. We conclude that simple dissemination of the data was ineffective (and even counterproductive in some instances), and that the states' data processing efforts have played a critical role in achieving the TRI's underlying goal

Notes and problems in applied general equilibrium economics by K. R Pearson( )

2 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""General-equilibrium"" refers to an analytical approach which looks at the economy as a complete system of inter-dependent components (industries, households, investors, governments, importers and exporters). ""Applied"" means that the primary interest is in systems that can be used to provide quantitative analysis of economic policy problems in particular countries. Reflecting the authors' belief in the models as vehicles for practical policy analysis, a considerable amount of material on data and solution techniques as well as on theoretical structures has been included. The sequence of cha
