Ramsey discounting calls for subtracting climate damages from economic growth rates

Consumption growth rates are an important source of uncertainty in the discount rate. Climate damages are an important source of uncertainty in consumption growth rates. When discounting climate damages growth rates must reflect the rate of those damages.

Policy sequencing toward decarbonization

Economics 101 says price carbon. Economics 102 says subsidize R&D. Political Economy 101 points to policies that support clean technology deployment.
