"Can Carbon Based Tariffs Effectively Reduce Emissions? A Numerical Analysis with Focus on China"
by Hübler, Michael

(1) We estimate CO2 implicitly exported via commodities relative to a region’s
total emissions: We find -15% for the industrialized, 10% for the developing region,
and 25% for China. (2) We analyze a Contraction and Convergence climate regime
in a CGE model including international capital mobility and technology diffusion:
When China does not participate in the regime and instead a carbon tariff is
imposed on its exports, it will likely be worse off than when participating. This
result does not hold for the developing region in general. Meanwhile, the effect on
emissions appears small.
