The Impact of Carbon Tax on Inequality in the United States

Nov 9, 2018
3:30 pm to 5:00 pm
Lafayette Hall L403

Mark Paul
Associate Professor
New College of Florida & Fellow at The Roosevelt Institute
Climate change and economic inequality are inextricably linked. Despite widespread agreement among economists that a carbon tax is the most efficient mechanism to curb greenhouse gas emissions, these taxes may disproportionately affect low-income households. This talk by Mark Paul explores this issue. Dr. Paul has extensive experience in carbon tax policy formation, including for the State of California whose plan he helped design.
