Content:

The course provides a rigorous survey on the classical theory of static externality. The course starts with efficiency and distributional effects of environmental policies. The second part of the course analyzes international trade and the differences between consumption- and production-based environmental policies. The third part then focuses on the choice between climate policy instruments under imperfect competition, voluntary emission reductions, linking environmental regulations between countries and instrument choice under uncertainty. Throughout the course we will link the theoretical models to real-world examples and empirical studies.
