A Nobel for climate economics
Worthy of your time: A nuanced discussion on Twitter about winners William Nordhaus and Paul Romer.
Plenty of conversations erupted on Twitter after the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in economics to William Nordhaus and Paul Romer, who pioneered environmental economics and efforts to create long-term sustainable economic growth.
One discussion, triggered by veteran Vox reporter David Roberts, is worthy of your attention for its nuance and its reference to Harvard University's Martin Weitzman, another titan in the field of environmental economics.
Don't know if I'd go this far, but I admit to a little ambivalence about it. https://t.co/jP6KzUJNDd— David Roberts (@David Roberts)1539007437.0
