Carbon taxes: A problem or a solution?

United States

The debate over whether the US should implement a carbon tax is both highly important and highly controversial. Supporters of a carbon tax argue that it would be the most efficient way of addressing climate change and implementing broader fiscal reform, while opponents suggest it would harm the economy and have almost no effect on the climate.

Please join AEI at this event assessing the merits and pitfalls of a US carbon tax. Senators Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Brian Schatz (D-HI) will unveil their own carbon tax proposal, and panelists will debate the implications of such a proposal.
