Climate change and the management of nonrenewable resources are two of the main challenges currently faced by humanity. This Applied Macroeconomics course provides students with the analytical and computational tools to understand, design, and evaluate the macroeconomic policies that can be used to tackle these challenges.
The course is divided in two modules: i) climate; and, ii) natural resources.
The climate economics module focuses on the rationale for (global) carbon prices based on rigorous economic theory. From the domestic perspective, this module provides students with deep insights into the computational tools, such as CGE models, used to assess domestic climate policies.
The resource economics module focuses on studying the limits to sustained long-run growth imposed by the finiteness of nonrenewable resources, and deals with the roles of technological innovation and policy to overcome these global barriers. From the domestic perspective, this module provides students with the analytical tools to inform the design of policies intended to mitigate the potentially detrimental effects of resource windfalls, and discusses the, much debated, long-run (welfare) effects of natural resource wealth.Idioma:
