I have a new working paper which clearly shows that a policy maker who evaluates mankind’s well-being would fully favour mitigation over adaptation. In fact, the result is that a policy maker should not invest in adaptation, because this may reduce global well-being significantly. If you want to know more, please do read on.
For all you readers that are questioning yourselves, your economics profession, or a convex combination between the two, I shall give a summary and interpretation of what Lionel Robbins, one of the great godfathers of economic thought, had in mind we (environmental) economists should be doing. And hopefully you find yourself mirrored in these views.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone out there.
