FT on climate change economics

In: Uncategorized

3 Dec 2008

The Financial Times published the third in its series of special magazines on climate change yesterday (“in association with GE”). It dealt with business after earlier issues tackled science and politics.

Its most striking feature is its conventional character. Although climate change is often portrayed as a “right on” radical issue the daily business paper thoroughly endorses the mainstream view.

The magazine includes an interview with Lord Nicholas Stern – arguably the doyen of climate change economics. There is also a roundtable with a group of economists including Martin Wolf, Jeffrey Sachs and David Henderson (a rare critical voice). The debate can be heard here.
