COMBATING CLIMATE CHANGE: POLITICAL ECONOMY OF GREEN PARADOXES

Samenvatting

Combining Tsur?s and Withagen?s expertise in dynamic modeling and management of natural resources in general and regulation of GHG emission in particular will generate synergy to the benefit of both parties. Our research will focus on two main issues: (i) evaluating the effects on optimal GHG emission policy of climate change induced catastrophic risks, and (ii) investigating policy instruments to implement the optimal GHG emission policy. The first topic will extend the works of Tsur and Withagen. The second (implementation) topic will apply and extend recent development in auction and mechanism design theory to the problem of regulating GHG emission.
