A Carbon "Price is Right"

Date: 
Wed, Feb 7, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

City:

Pricing carbon is viewed by economists left, right and center as the simplest and most effective way to reduce carbon emissions. Momentum is growing: Carbon fee and dividend (CFD) and cap and trade policies are currently used, or are planned, in many parts of the world. How do they work? How might they affect the poor, and our economy in general? This panel will explore the challenges and opportunities of market-driven strategies to address the climate crisis.
