Estimates of Net Cost of Waxman-Markey Bill

Lynne Kiesling

If you are interested in following the Waxman-Markey energy-climate bill as it wends its way through Congress, John at Environmental Economics alerts us to the EPA’s analysis of the bill’s cost. The EPA estimates that it will cost less than $150/year, contrary to other, higher estimates. I’m not convinced by the EPA estimates, either; I’d like to see an independent benefit-cost analysis.
