Workshop Warm-up: Climate Change Commentary

On the 12th Feb Greg Mankiw posted a quick summary of some of the more recent views on Stern and climate change.

All three articles are interesting and should contribute to the discussion at the workshop next month here at the University of Birmingham on the Economics of the Stern Review.

Climate Change Commentary
Economists Joe Stiglitz, Nicholas Stern, and Martin Weitzman have new pieces on global warming. The most interesting (as well as the most technically demanding) is the one by Weitzman. His conclusion: "The Stern Review may well be right for the wrong reasons."
