PPOL 613 - Envir & Climate Change Econ
How much should we pay to improve air quality or to protect endangered species? Is it better to tax pollution or to have a cap-and-trade program? How concerned should we be about climate change damages that may occur 100 years from now? This course shows how economic principles can help to answer these questions and many others. Readings will include a textbook, case studies, and articles from academic economics journals.
Pre-requisites: Intermediate Microeconomics and Statistical Methods (Quant 1). It’s useful if the students have covered externalities and Pigouvian taxation. These will be covered in the beginning of the course.
