PIIE – The macroeconomic implications of climate action
Climate change mitigation is bound to entail significant consequences for growth, employment, inflation, and public finances. But considerable uncertainty surrounds the channels through which mitigation efforts will bring benefits or impose costs on various sectors of the global economy, from nations to workers, households, and companies. This conference is organized to shed light on this new field of study, including the key mechanisms and methodologies for empirical assessment, and to draw policy conclusions. The conference will feature presentation of papers, policy panels, and discussion.
