This conference on November 9-10 will focus on the challenges of maintaining economic progress, and improvements in human welfare, while remaining within environmental boundaries that will sustain those improvements. The first day “The Future of Growth in the Climate Transition” will explore questions on environmentally sustainable economic growth, from climate justice and poverty reduction to energy markets and the relationship between economic and climate models. The second day will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Nordhaus and Tobin’s classic paper, “Is Growth Obsolete?” and examine the linkage between the environment and economic growth and the opportunities and implication of including the environment in systems of economic measurement.
Natalia Fabra will participate in the session on renewable energies policies, together with Nicholas Ryan (Yale) and Catherine Wolfram (MIT).
Other speakers include Nobel laureates Esther Duflo (MIT) and Bill Nordhaus (Yale), as well as Islamul Haque (Yale), Allan Hsiao (Princeton), Kelsey Jack (UCSB), Samuel Kortum (Yale), Gregory Lane (Chicago Harris), Valerie Ramey (UCSD), Tony Smith (Yale), Ethan Addicott (Exeter), Matthew Agarwala (Cambridge), Spencer Banzahf (NCSU), Steven Berry (Yale), Linda Bilmes (Harvard), Partha Dasgupta (Cambridge), Eli Fenichel (Yale), Dennis Fixler (BEA), Stephie Fried (FRBSF), Valerie Hickey (World Bank), Chad Jones (Stanford), Beth Kiser (Fed Board), Sarah Kapnick (NOAA), Albert Kroese (IMF), Steve Landefeld (BEA), Ehsan Masood (Nature), Nick Muller (CMU), Carl Obst (IDEEA), Rohini Pande (Yale), and more.
