Economic Implications of Climate Change Policy

with Christopher Plante, Director, Environment Program, The Asia Foundation and Ray Williams, Director, Long-Term Energy Policy, PG&E.

While the debate over the causes of climate change has largely subsided, a new debate has emerged: what is the best climate change policy moving forward? More importantly, what is the most efficient and cost-effective policy? Join the World Affairs Council and a panel of economic and policy experts for a discussion on the economic costs and barriers to implementing a successful climate change policy. What are the foreseeable costs to individuals, businesses, and government? The panel will also compare climate change policies across developing and developed economies—specifically, taking a comparative look at China and California.
