Noted economist Tom Courchene speaks to a sold out Canada 2020 luncheon crowd, setting out why the idea of a carbon tax is gaining ground as the preferred policy instrument for addressing climate change. At the lunch, he outlined how one might be workable and some likely impacts on Canadian firms internationally.
Courchene also called for the creation of a robust infrastructure for the coming economic federalism required to address climate change.
