Course Description The class is an introduction to the economics of climate change. We start with a brief survey of the science of climate change and review basic facts about emissions and impacts. We proceed to study various concepts that lie at the heart of environmental economics and economics in general. These concepts include efficiency, externalities, public goods, and instruments to correct market failures like standards, taxes, and cap and trade. Next, we focus on two crucial features of the economics of climate change: intertempo- ral trade-offs and uncertainty. Finally, we review international cooperation from an economic perspective employing simple game theoretic concepts and discuss distributional aspects climate change.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
