Warwick J. McKibbin and Peter J. Wilcoxen. Examines the effect of border tax adjustments, or "green tariffs", that have been proposed as a mechanism for addressing international variations in climate policies.
Warwick J. McKibbin and Peter J. Wilcoxen. Argues that long term climate policies must be realistic about the powers and incentives of national governments in order to provide credible incentives to household and firms.
Warwick J. McKibbin, Robert Shackleton and Peter J. Wilcoxen. Examines the cost of returning OECD carbon dioxide emissions to 1990 levels and calculates the gains from trade that could be achieved by allowing international trading in carbon emissions permits. This paper focuses on measuring gains from trade and is NOT an evaluation of the Kyoto Protocol (see kyoto22.pdf).

Warwick J. McKibbin and Peter J. Wilcoxen. Presents a critique of international permit trading as a method for controlling global carbon dioxide emissions. Proposes an alternative system of national permits and fees.
Dale W. Jorgenson and Peter J. Wilcoxen. Prepared for the Joint Committee on Taxation of the U.S. Congress. Examines the effects of switching the U.S. income tax system to a flat tax or a unified income tax. (The latter amounts to removing the double taxation of dividends.)
Contains discussions of (1) Broyden's method for updating a Jacobian matrix during a Newton's method iteration; (2) an enhanced version of the Fair/Taylor method for solving rational expectations models; and (3) the Kuroda/Bachrach method for balancing bi-proportional matricies. This file contains Appendix E of my 1988 PhD thesis and does not contain any computer code. (Code for Kuroda's method and the extended Fair/Taylor algorithm are available separately). thesis_e.pdf
