Some effects of a decreasing elasticity of substitution between clean and dirty energy on optimal climate policy
Using a climate model with endogenous technology, this seminar investigates the implications of a decreasing elasticity of substitution between clean and dirty energy as the share of clean energy rises.
This lecture will evaluate the nearly five decades of exchange-rate flexibility since 1973 through the prism of both Harry G Johnson and economists’ theories.
