Emission impossible: balancing environmental concerns and inflation

27.05.2024 16:45 - 17:45


This paper introduces a simple market equilibrium model to explore how policy measures targeting emission reductions impact prices  (policy induced inflation). The model provides a quantification of the potential rise in inflation as a direct consequence of more ambitious environmental policies. We examine the trade-offs between environmental ambitions and economic stability, determining the extent to which inflation can be tolerated in the pursuit of enhanced environmental outcomes.
