The Carbon Tax (VIDEO)
This conversation was recorded on August 1, 2019.

Michael Klein, Executive Editor of EconoFact and Gilbert Metcalf (Tufts) discuss some of the challenges of implementing a carbon tax in the U.S. They highlight that political considerations have impeded the adoption of a carbon tax in the U.S., but these seem to be shifting as we see more evidence of climate change.
