Association Webinars: Effects of Carbon Pricing in Mexico, from subsidies to taxes



This webinar looks at Mexico's strategy for the phase-out of fossil fuel subsidies and the gradual introduction of implicit and explicit carbon taxes during the 2010s. The findings point to a significant effect in reducing gasoline and diesel consumption, both in absolute terms and compared to the counterfactual, reinforcing the idea that gradualist policies can achieve success in making carbon pricing a key instrument in high-middle income countries to achieve fiscal and climate goals.

This webinar is based upon the article "From Negative to Positive Carbon Pricing in Mexico by Carlos Muñoz-Piña, Mariza Montes de Oca Leon, and Marisol Rivera-Planter in Economics of Energy and Environmental Policy 11(2)
