Economics Speaker Series: Carbon Pricing Costs for Households and the Progressivity of Revenue Recycling Options in Canada
January 28, 2022 at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pmFree
The Department of Economics, Philosophy and Political Science invites you to a talk from Dr. Jennifer Winter.
The Government of Canada’s implementation of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change (PCF) mandates a floor price on greenhouse gas emissions in all provinces and territories in Canada. Using synthetic household microdata, we quantify the direct and indirect costs of carbon pricing for households in each province and across the income distribution, and identify the net cost to households under four potential revenue-recycling approaches.
Dr. Winter will discuss carbon pricing costs for households and the progressivity of revenue recycling options in Canada.
