CGEP Scholar Dr. Noah Kaufman examines four concerns that carbon tax supporters have raised with the design of Initiative 1631 in Washington state. For each, he highlights the consensus of economists on how a carbon tax should be designed (in theory) and compares those recommendations to the details of Initiative 1631.
