In 1986, New Zealand responded to the open-access problem by establishing the world's largest individual transferable quota (ITQ) system. Using a 15-year panel dataset from New Zealand that covers 33 species and more than ...
Physical and economic potential of geological CO2 storage in saline aquifers.
(Environ Sci Technol, 2009-03-15)
Carbon sequestration in sandstone saline reservoirs holds great potential for mitigating climate change, but its storage potential and cost per ton of avoided CO2 emissions are uncertain. We develop a general model to determine ...
Climate Technology Research, Development, and Demonstration: Funding Sources, Institutions, and Instruments

Policy-induced technology adoption: Evidence from the U.S. lead phasedown
(Journal of Industrial Economics, 2003-09-01)
Theory suggests that economic instruments, such as pollution taxes or tradable permits, can provide more efficient technology adoption incentives than conventional regulatory standards. We explore this issue for an important ...
