TI Economics Lectures 2023

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

Hunt Allcott, Professor of Global Environmental Policy at Stanford University, will give the TI Economics Lectures 2023


Empirical Environmental and Energy Economics

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.

Hunt Allcott is an applied microeconomist working at the intersection of behavioral, public, and environmental/energy economics. He is a Professor of Global Environmental Policy at Stanford, a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, an affiliate of ideas42 and the energy efficiency research group E2e, a Contributing Author on the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and a member of the board of editors of the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy. He holds a PhD from Harvard University and a BS and MS from Stanford University.
