Tuesday, October 25, 2011 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

OPEN TO CARNEGIE NEW LEADERS

But Will the Planet Notice?: How Smart Economics Can Save the World

Description

"For more than 30 years, I've been waiting for a book that would accurately embody an economic perspective on environmental policy and clearly present it to a truly broad readership. At last, Gernot Wagner has done it, and done it with style! His explanations and commentaries are true to the underlying science and economics, and his prose makes this not just a very interesting read, but an immensely enjoyable one. Whether you are on the right or the left of the political spectrum—or stuck in the middle like me—this is a book that you should read, and will be glad you did!"

—Robert N. Stavins, Albert Pratt Professor of Business and Government, Harvard Kennedy School

(See Gernot Wagner's op-ed in The New York Times, September 7, 2011: Going Green but Getting Nowhere.)
