In which I steal another of Gernot’s posts

In case there is anyone out there that reads CT but not EnvEcon (if so, I’d advise you to start reading it regularly), Gernot Wagner links to a nice piece about the general consensus that economists have quietly reached regarding the costs of climate change containment.  Be sure to check out Rob Stavins’ comment, which clarifies his position in the whole scene a bit.

Econoblog fantasy draft

Posted by Evan Herrnstadt on September 19, 2007

Dani Rodrik posts on new blogs by Krugman and the World Bank’s chief economist for South Asia. I’m excited about both of these for sure, but the comments that follow center on which economists ought to be online. I’m encouraged to see suggestions of some environmental and resource folks, such as Schelling, Nordhaus, Dasgupta, and Weitzman. Hopefully one or more will heed the call and pick up the habit. My favorite part of economics blogs is seeing top scholars debate issues on a semi-regular basis. The discussion is certainly exciting to follow for those of us who have a somewhat unconventional perspective of what makes a superstar.
