Law’s Juscelino F. Colares publishes carbon tariffs article in American Law and Economics Review

Juscelino F. Colares, the Schott-van den Eynden Professor of Business Law and professor of political science, recently co-authored an article on carbon tariffs.

The article, titled “The Opportunity and Limitations of Neutral Carbon Tariffs,” was published by Oxford University Press’ American Law and Economics Review, one of the top peer-reviewed publications in the field of law and international economics.

The article examines the World Trade Organization’s consistency and inefficiency of border carbon adjustments. It presents the first formal definition of the National Treatment Principle in article III of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. In addition, it compares the formalized neutral tariff concept to different levels of economic efficiency.
