      Carbon Pricing and Energy

      Economists acknowledge that a price on carbon, charging per ton of CO2 emissions, could reduce greenhouse emissions. However, a strong carbon pricing system has yet to be enacted in the United States, and the implementation of carbon pricing has had mixed success around the world. This panel will discuss the policy and politics of carbon pricing and the prospects for enacting a carbon price, especially in the U.S. What is the economic basis of a carbon price? What are the political barriers to carbon pricing, and how might they be overcome?
