Should the Regulator or the Market Decide When to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

Friedman, Lee. The Economists' Voice, 6, No. 13, December 2009, Article 1.


Although much of what economists write is "inside baseball" — written for a small audience of specialists — economists have much to contribute to the public debate on a wide range of policy issues. We believe that anyone concerned about the central issues of the day, whether they are students, policymakers, or other citizens, would benefit from hearing economists debate what should be done about problems from budget balancing to global development, from intellectual property to outsourcing, from health care reform to how to provide old age security.

The Economists' Voice creates a forum for readable ideas and analysis by leading economists on vital issues of our day.
