In defense of the economic analysis of regulation by Robert William Hahn( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 292 libraries worldwide
"Several scholars are highly skeptical of the use of cost-benefit analysis and other economic tools in regulatory decision making. Recently, these critics have focused on debunking economic summaries of regulatory activity, sometimes referred to as regulatory scorecards. The critics generally support less quantitative economic analysis of regulations." "This monograph addresses the analytical concerns raised by the critics. It makes four points: First, summary measures of the impact of regulations have made important contributions to our understanding of the regulatory process, a point often overlooked by the critics; second, many of the critics' concerns could be addressed by making refinements to scorecards rather than wholly rejecting them as an analytical tool; third, some of the suggestions made by the critics are legitimate, but many are not; and finally, the solution to legitimate concerns raised by the critics is not to eliminate quantitative economic analysis but to gain a deeper understanding of its strengths and weaknesses and to use it wisely."--Jacket
Reviving regulatory reform : a global perspective by Robert William Hahn( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 285 libraries worldwide
"Hahn argues that the forces of globalization, increases in average wealth, and our growing understanding of regulatory impacts will dramatically alter the nature of regulation in the years ahead. We are likely to see more economic deregulation and more social regulation. The increase in economic deregulation is likely to be good for the average citizen, while the changes in social regulation will have both advantages and disadvantages. In general, regulation will become more effective as human beings develop regulatory institutions that are better suited to their economic and social needs. The news, he concludes, is not all good from an economic standpoint, but the general direction of the change is quite positive."--Jacket

Information markets have proven to be accurate at predicting a range of events, that scholars are challenged to examine the potential for using this tool in other areas. This book brings together nine leading scholars to evaluate the applicability of information markets to the work of policymakers, non-profit organizations, and the private sector. Information markets have proven to be so remarkably accurate at predicting a wide range of events, from presidential elections to Oscar winners, that scholars are challenged to examine the potential for using this innovative tool in other areas.

Climate change and common sense : essays in honour of Tom Schelling ( Book )
11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 143 libraries worldwide
There is widespread agreement that climate change is a serious problem. If we fail to regulate greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming, or use alternative strategies for addressing the problem, the damages could be significant, and perhaps catastrophic.After several international meetings in which nation-states have tried unsuccessfully to address the climate change problem, there is a sense of frustration and urgency: frustration at the slow pace at which countries are moving toward an international agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; urgency because of the growing evidence that climate change is a serious problem that should be addressed globally and quickly.This book takes a close look at the fundamental political and economic processes driving climate change policy. It identifies institutional arrangements and policies that are needed to design more effective climate change policy. It also examines ethical and distributional arguments that are critical in understanding and framing the climate debate. The book is built around a conference honouring Tom Schelling that took place at the Sustainable Consumption Institute at The University ofManchester. Each chapter represents a significant contribution to the literature on the political economy of climate change

The effect of allowance allocations on cap-and-trade system performance by Robert William Hahn( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
We examine an implication of the "Coase Theorem" which has had an important impact both on environmental economics and on public policy in the environmental domain. Under certain conditions, the market equilibrium in a cap-and-trade system will be cost-effective and independent of the initial allocation of tradable rights. That is, the overall cost of achieving a given aggregate emission reduction will be minimized, and the final allocation of permits will be independent of the initial allocation. We call this the independence property. This property is very important because it allows equity and efficiency concerns to be separated in a relatively straightforward manner. In particular, the property means that the government can establish the overall pollution-reduction goal for a cap-and-trade system by setting the cap, and leave it up to the legislature -- such as the U.S. Congress -- to construct a constituency in support of the program by allocating the allowances to various interests without affecting either the environmental performance of the system or its aggregate social costs. Our primary objective in this paper is to examine the conditions under which the independence property is likely to hold -- both in theory and in practice. A number of factors can call the independence property into question theoretically, including market power, transaction costs, non-cost-minimizing behavior, and conditional allowance allocations. We find that, in practice, there is support for the independence property in some, but not all cap-and-trade applications
