New Study of Household Burdens from a U.S. Cap-and-Trade System

We’ve released a new study today exploring the likely cost to U.S. households of a typical cap-and-trade system aimed at cutting carbon emissions by 15 percent. The study uses a standard input-output model to estimate how the costs of cap-and-trade regulations will be borne by households in various income groups, age groups, family types and U.S. regions. The study is No. 6 in the Working Paper series at the Tax Foundation in Washington, D.C.
