New Nobel Economics Winner Jean Tirole on Energy, Climate, and Environment
October 13, 2014
Jean Tirole was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences today “for his analysis of market power and regulation”. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, that he’s written a lot about energy, climate change, and environmental issues. Here’s a quick selection of his relevant papers.
I’d like to try an experiment: Lots of this blog’s readers are experts in the areas covered by these papers. I invite you to read a paper from this list and either summarize or riff on it in the comments, so that everyone who reads this can benefit.

“Some Political Economy of Global Warming”
“Regional Initiatives and Cost of Delaying Binding Climate Change Agreements”
“Climate change negotiations: Time to reconsider”
