Global Carbon Pricing: The Path to Climate Cooperation

"Global Carbon Pricing: The Path to Climate Cooperation", published by the MIT Press in June 2017, is the state-of-the-art on the design of carbon taxation as a policy tool for compliance with the Paris Agreement. In the book, the authors, including two with Nobels in economics, urge for a policy change that makes compliance consistent with each country’s interest. We urge all serious scholars and climate activists to read it.

The free edition was made possible by support of the German Research Foundation through the University of Cologne Research Unit “Design & Behavior”. For more information about the book, visit the website of the Global Carbon Pricing Project.
