When looking for ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, many policy makers and advocates cite a carbon tax as an efficient way to put a price on the environmental effects of fossil fuels.
REMI cordially invites you to a carbon tax discussion at our Washington, DC policy luncheon on Thursday, September 27th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with guest presenter Scott Nystrom, a Director at FTI Consulting, Inc.
Alliance for Market Solutions commissioned FTI Consulting to evaluate the economic, fiscal and emission effects of a national revenue-neutral carbon tax. The study’s authors applied this tax at the point of extraction or import, and simulated the implications of raising the cost of fossil fuels on the national, state, and industry levels.
Mr. Nystrom, a co-author on the report, will review the proposal and the potential implications for the U.S. and state economies and major industries. He will also describe the methodologies behind the analysis of a revenue-neutral carbon tax.
REMI luncheons are held each month at Metro Center, 700 12th Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington D.C. 20005.
