Download the Report: Deficit Reduction and Carbon Taxes: Budgetary, Economic, and Distributional Impacts
Researchers at Resources for the Future (RFF) developed a new model of the US economy designed to analyze the economic, distributional, and environmental impacts of a federal carbon tax for current and future generations across the country. The model also examines the most efficient uses of revenue from a carbon tax—for example, to support revenue-neutral tax reform, reduce the deficit, or provide rebates to consumers.
RFF invites you to learn more about these modeling results in a special half-day seminar featuring distinguished researchers and experts. In the first session, RFF researchers Rob Williams, Richard Morgenstern, Jared Carbone, and Dallas Burtraw will share model results and describe carbon tax impacts across a range of revenue recycling scenarios. In the second session, experts from the research and policy communities (see below) will comment on the economics and the politics of the model’s results.
