A Carbon "Price is Right"

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Ann Arbor District Library, 343 S. Fifth Ave

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 currenlty 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.
