Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for the next event in our Global Leaders in Energy Lecture Series. This event will feature a lecture and discussion with Benedict Clements, Division Chief, Expenditure Policy Division, Fiscal Affairs Department, International Monetary Fund, on energy subsidies in advanced and developing economies. Mr. Clements will discuss the consequences of energy subsidies, which range from aggravating fiscal imbalances and global warming to crowding out private investment in the energy sector. In turn, he will examine what types of policies and approaches can be undertaken to reduce subsidies and win public support for reform. Manuel Pinho, Visiting Professor, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University, and Faculty Affiliate, Center on Global Energy Policy, will moderate a discussion following the presentation. Registration is required. This event is open to press. It will also be livestreamed at: http://energypolicy.columbia.edu/watch.
