Introduction by the editor

The economic literature is dominated by ex-ante analyses of climate policy. In the olden days, that was all that could be done. However, Finland was the first country to introduce a carbon tax, in 1990. Since then, many other countries have implemented policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Ex-post evaluations remain rare, but the literature is now growing fast.
Papers on the impact of carbon taxes are listed on a separate page.
Besides the papers below, these three are worthwhile too
