Tinbergen Institute Economics Lecture 2023

The Tinbergen Institute Lectures are an annual series of advanced PhD-level courses. Qualified external students are explicitly invited to participate.

Professor Allcott (Stanford University) will give the Tinbergen Institute Lecture 2023.

This course will provide an overview of empirical research in environmental and energy economics. As the world reduces emissions and adapts to climate change, governments face important policy design questions. What is the social cost of carbon, and how harmful is air pollution? What are the efficiency and distributional consequences of second-best policies such as automotive fuel economy standards, zero-emission vehicle mandates, and subsidies for energy efficiency and renewables? How can politically feasible policies be adjusted to improve economic efficiency? If governments fail to act, how effective are voluntary actions by individuals and firms? Professor Allcott will discuss the latest evidence on these issues using tools from public finance, industrial organization, and behavioral economics.
