The European Union´s Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) is the world´s largest market for carbon and the most significant multinational initiative ever taken to mobilize markets to protect the environment. It will be an important influence on the development and implementation of trading schemes in the US, Japan, and elsewhere. However, as is true of any pioneering public policy experiment, this scheme has generated much controversy. Pricing Carbon provides the first detailed description and analysis of the EU ETS, focusing on the first ´trial´ period of the scheme (2005-7). Written by an international team of experts, it allows readers to get behind the headlines and come to a better understanding of what was done and what happened based on a dispassionate, empirically based review of the evidence. This book should be read by anyone who wants to know what happens when emissions are capped, traded, and priced.
´´Trade has been the economic foundation of international integration and globalization. But, as Findlay and O´Rourke show in this masterful, state-of-the-art historical survey, it has also been a very frequent cause of rivalry between nations and maritime conflict. No better book exists on the role that commerce has played in generating both the wealth of nations and the wars between them. The authors command the literature the way Victorian admirals ruled the waves.´´--Niall Ferguson, Harvard University´´A work of extraordinary scope and ambition and a major achievement. Findlay and O´Rourke show how international trade opens an illuminating window onto fully a millennium of world economic history.´´--Barry Eichengreen, University of California, BerkeleyThe vision that emerges in this book is more powerful and encompassing than any previous study of world trade. It passes all the tests that an economic historian might require in terms of empirical evidence while also embodying a very clear view of the economics of globalization. The authors have new and important things to say about trade and the Industrial Revolution, the Great Divergence, the extent and driving forces of the globalization of trade in different periods, and the possibility of another globalization backlash. A marvelous achievement.´´--Nicholas Crafts, University of Warwick´´The significance of this work lies in its comprehensiveness and the unflagging thoughtfulness of its analysis. It is very rare to find such detailed historical coverage resting on such a solid theoretical foundation.´´--Eric L. Jones, author of The European Miracle and Cultures Merging´´This book, magisterial in scope and execution, marries a reading of voluminous historical research with an economist´s sharp eye to what is important in shaping economies and events. The authors have drawn exhaustively on the secondary historical, political, and economic literature of the relevant periods and have integrated it faithfully with their own conceptual framework.´´--Douglas A. Irwin, Dartmouth College
