Greening the Tax Code: Why America Needs a Carbon Tax

Grant Year: 2016

Gilbert Metcalf will research and write a book that explores whether a carbon tax could serve as an effective means of limiting greenhouse gas emissions while also making the U.S. tax code more supportive of economic growth. He will review and synthesize the existing literature on environmental taxes and embark on additional research to address some of the key implementation challenges associated with a carbon tax.
