Description:
Fifteenth CESifo Venice Summer Institute 2014 - The Economics and Political Economy of Energy Subsidies
Location:
Venice, Island of San Servolo, Italy
Subject:
Subsidies to fossil energies are largely wasteful as they serve to increase carbon emissions, weaken public budgets and importers?? energy security, and in most cases impact income distribution adversely. Reform of energy subsidy policies is sorely needed in many countries, and is an important international policy goal. But although much work, including by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, is put into implementing such reform, it is still very difficult to achieve. An objective of this workshop is to stimulate academic interest in this topic, and serve as a forum for new related research.
