Costing Carbon: Just a Tax or a New Economic Order?
Thursday 19 November | 1 pm | Cultivate, The Greenhouse, 17 St Andrews Street, Dublin 2 | Admission €free | Sandwiches and coffee sponsored by Sheridans Cheesemongers
There's going to be a carbon tax in the Budget… Is this the end of the beginning of pricing carbon in our economy? How can the cost of carbon work in our economic system? Is it about changing behaviour or does it offer new ways to re-distribute wealth between rich and poor? Will we all live off carbon rations? Will we be able to trade them? Will this give Malawi its first advantage over the US?
This seminar is a must for policy makers, journalists and analysts who want to understand the possibilities of this new economic force.
The speakers are: Minister Eamon Ryan; Richard Douthwaite, Economist; Paul Harris, Bank of Ireland Global Markets and Sue Scott, ERSI.
