Join in to learn about the prospects of a carbon wealth tax. To address a worsening climate crisis, economists have often touted the tremendous potentials of carbon pricing. However, evidence suggests that such a policy has so far produced limited effects. This panel of distinguished economists will propose a new concept that targets dirty assets; a brown wealth tax to be levied on carbon-intensive capital instead of products. It is argued that such a shift would help speed up the transition to a green economy with the added benefit of addressing wealth inequality.
