Abstract:
In this talk, I will present a global computable general equilibrium model with carbon taxes and border tax adjustments for Annex B regions to understand the mitigation effects of such policies. Carbon contents for the border tax adjustments are computed by applying a carbon conservation principle. Analysis of the results from these sensitivity studies are presented using matrices representing bilateral carbon emission flows.
