Gastvortrag Global prospects for emissions pricing

Emissions trading is floundering in Europe and about to be abolished in Australia. But China and Korea are planning to introduce emissions trading schemes (ETS), while Mexico and South Africa are planning carbon taxes. In this seminar I will present an analysis of developments on climate policy in Australia and China; argue that hybrid approaches with a price floor are suitable for reform of the EU ETS and for ETS in China and other industrialising countries; and discuss the idea of carbon tax thresholds as a way to overcome political resistance to carbon taxes.
