IAmA economist, Chris Ragan, of McGill University and chair of Ecofiscal, here with Dale Beugin, Ecofiscal’s Executive Director. Let’s talk about carbon pricing. AMA!
Hello everyone, I’m Chris Ragan. I’m an economist, Director of the Max Bell School of Public Policy at McGill University, and Chair of Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission. I’m here with Dale Beugin, the Executive Director of the Ecofiscal Commission.
This week, the we released a new report, Clearing the air: How carbon pricing helps Canada fight climate change (https://ecofiscal.ca/carbon-pricing-works/). This report is timely as the public debate about carbon pricing is heating up in Canada. But debates will only support good policy decisions if they are based on facts and evidence. Let me clear the air. Ask me anything!
Thanks very much everyone for participating. We look forward to continuing the conversation about carbon pricing across Canada. Check out our YouTube Channel for videos that give a good overview of carbon pricing. https://www.youtube.com/user/ecofiscal
