Technological change and the environment.
Nordhaus, William D.
The 13 articles of this collection are the result of three workshops on induced technological change (ITC) held in 1997-1999 at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in Laxenburg, Austria (where two of the editors teach; the third teaches economics at Yale U.). The chapters consider topics that include the history of the ITC debate, international perspectives, various ITC modeling approaches, evolutionary interpretation of innovation in medical history, the relation of costs and performance of new technologies with carbon dioxide emission reduction, and the place of ITC in the context of global climate change policy.
