Hicksian Traverse Revisited: Conditions for the Energy Transition

This article analyzes the transition dynamics, what Hicks called the traverse, from one equilibrium toward another one—and the conditions for such a transfer—in a bi-sectoral economy under technological shocks.

A representation of the world population dynamics for integrated assessment models

In this article, we design a phenomenological model of the global human population dynamics by using the gross world product (GWP) as an exogenous input variable to determine the birth rate and death rates of each age group

Foreign Demand and Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Empirical Evidence with Implications for Leakage

In this paper, we estimate for the first time how production and emissions of manufacturing firms in one country respond to foreign demand shocks in trading partner markets.

Why conditional subsidies for risky innovative green projects should be prefered to flat subsidies

This paper analyzes the potential benefit of using subsidies conditional on success or failure of an R&D program, rather than a flat subsidy.

Debt and damages: what are the chances of staying under the 2°C warming threshold?

In a stock-flow consistent macrodynamic model featuring two crucial endogenous destabilizing channels, namely debt accumulation and climate change, we perform a sensitivity analysis on four fundamental parameters of the climate and economic systems.

What policy should be adopted to encourage deployment of hydrogen vehicles in France?

Based on the Norwegian experience with low-carbon vehicles, the authors analyse the hydrogen plan launched by Nicolas Hulot when he was Minister for Ecological and Solidarity Transition and make several recommendations.

Energy capture, technological change, and economic growth: an evolutionary perspective

The purpose of this article is to reformulate a clear and in-depth state of knowledge provided by a thermo-evolutionary perspective of the economic system. It is shown that during the entire human history, energy has been central to direct the successive phases of technological change and economic development.
