The Impact of Trial Runs on the Acceptability of Pigouvian Taxes: Experimental Evidence

Todd L. Cherry, Kroll, Stephan, Steffen Kallbekken (Working Paper;2011:01)

This paper examines the political difficulty of enacting welfare-enhancing Pigouvian taxes. Using referenda in a market experiment with externalities, we investigate the effect of trial periods on the acceptability of two theoretically equivalent variants of Pigouvian taxes. While implementing eithe...

A simple model for scenario studies of changes in global climate: Version 1.0

Jan S. Fuglestvedt, Terje K. Berntsen (Working Paper;1999:02)

This paper gives a documentation of a simple climate model for studying the effects of future climate gas emissions on global mean temperature and sea level. Input to the model is global emissions of 29 gases. Atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) is calculated on the basis of work publi...

Metodar for å samanlikne utslepp av klimagassar: GWP-konseptet og alternative metodar

Sygna, Linda, Jan S. Fuglestvedt, Hans Asbjørn Aaheim (Working Paper;1999:11)

I denne publikasjonen har vi søkt å presentere ulike metodar for å samanlikne effekten av utslepp av klimagassar. Det globale oppvarmingspotensialet (GWP) er utvikla av FN sitt klimapanel (IPCC) til dette formålet. Dette konseptet har ein viktig funksjon i politiske avvegingar mellom ulike klimagass...
