Association Webinars: Next Steps for a Climate-Sincere US President?


Those who are worried that a President Biden won't be able to legislate cap-and-trade might take heart in the fact that other leading jurisdictions are relying on regulations more than is sometimes recognized. And that the design of these regulations is crucial when it comes to the trade-off between political acceptability and economic efficiency. In this webinar, Mark Jaccard, a Canadian academic economist and government policy advisor, discusses some of the evidence on mixing pricing and flexible regulations in jurisdictions that are leading in the GHG mitigation battle.
