Episode 13: Professor Paul Ekins| Smart regulation, new technologies and carbon taxation

Little had been written on the role of environmental taxes when Paul Ekins wrote The Living Economy in1986. Since that time we have learnt a lot more about the potential role of taxation in dealing with climate change, yet there has been relatively little implementation of these ideas. In this podcast, Professor Ekins gives his view on the crucial role of smart regulation, new technologies and carbon taxation in dealing with climate change. He also discusses role of markets in solving climate problems, the challenge of inequality, and the prospects for a low-carbon high-growth economy.
