EXPLORING THE ECONOMICS OF A LOW-CARBON ECONOMY
Chris Ragan will discuss why a broad-based price (or tax) on carbon emissions should be a vital component of any policy package, which is aimed at enhancing the transition to a low-carbon economy. He will review the state of play for carbon pricing across Canada. He will also address whether other policies will be needed to complement the carbon price, or whether a well-designed carbon price is a sufficient policy tool.
