ECONOMICS AND LAW


Item #d95mar75

Managing the Global Commons-The Economics of Climate Change, W.D. Nordhaus, 213 pp., Dec. 1994, $32.50 (MIT).

Gives the results of over two decades of research that attempts to encompass economic, scientific and policy aspects of the great geophysical experiment that humanity has undertaken through its interventions into the natural environment. Presents detailed analysis of results of the DICE model, which integrates climate mitigation options and the economy. A recent advance is construction of a small model to encompass the primary components of the climate and economic system within an optimization framework. Compares several climate policy options, and finds that even with major technological breakthroughs and stringent (costly) controls, the momentum of past emissions, coupled with great inertia in climate change policy, will lead to inevitable, massive climate change.
