Lecture by Professor Martin Weitzman

On 21 October Professor Martin Weitzman delivered a lecture at the European University institute, Max Weber Programme, with the title Why is the Economics of Climate Change so Difficult and Controversial?

The lecture provided a general overview of the economics of climate change, with emphasis on why this particular application of economic analysis presents special — almost unique — challenges to the economics profession.  

On 22-23 October Professor Weitzman  gave a keynote speech at the FSR Climate Annual Conference.
