讲座摘要:Choices in energy regulation often involve options with divergent impacts on household energy prices. In particular, pollution taxes often raise prices more than other policies because they price inframarginal emissions.  At the same time, household energy use varies widely, across income and demographics, as well as within any easily identifiable group. This suggests that these choices can have significant distributional effects to be weighed alongside efficiency concerns. In this paper, we characterize this tradeoff, alternative welfare perspectives for making policy choices, and the sufficient statistics that policymakers might need.  This provides a guide for when equity effects could trump efficiency concerns.
