The Economics of Carbon Taxes

The pros and cons of introducing a carbon tax in the United States are the topic of many spirited debates, yet discussion about the consequences of alternative tax designs remains largely confined to academia.


In an effort to shed more light on this topic and its budgetary impact, AEI, the Climate and Energy Economics Project at the Brookings Institution, the International Monetary Fund, and Resources for the Future are co-hosting a conference to discuss ideas for U.S. carbon tax design and options for the potential use of carbon tax revenues. The conference will feature four panels with presentations of policy briefs by leading experts. Each panel will tackle a particular design or implementation issue.


Following their remarks, speakers will take audience questions.


Space is limited. Please register here to attend.
