Climate Change: The Economics of and Prospects for a Global Deal

From Nicholas Stern's market perspective, climate change constitutes an "externality" that, like traffic grid lock in a city center, arises when some people's actions affect the welfare of others, at no cost to the perpetrators.

Challenges to the Global Economy

If economic analyses earned ratings like movies, this event would receive an X for extremely disturbing. Two of the field's most prominent voices spare any sugar coating in their unsettling accounts of the world's unfolding economic crisis.

Anthropogenic Climate Change: Science, Economics and Policy

If you'd asked Ronald Prinn a decade ago whether human activity played a significant part in global warming, he would have given you an "equivocal" answer. Today, he is no longer straddling the line.

Intellectual Capital: Simon Johnson on the Financial Crisis

By now, the global financial crisis is something we're becoming all too familiar with. But knowing about it and knowing what to do about it are two distinctly different things. In this exclusive podcast, MIT Sloan economics expert Professor Simon Johnson provides studied insights on what the government and financial institutions need to do to turn things around. For Johnson, who recently returned to MIT after serving as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, proper policy is a key step towards setting things right, as is strong, decisive, coordinated action.

Observations on the Science of Finance in the Practice of Finance

There will be a time "beyond crisis," asserts Robert C. Merton, who delves into the dense science of derivatives -- a field he has fundamentally shaped -- to explain how the vast global economic collapse has come about, and how financial innovations at the heart of the collapse could also be tools for reconstruction.

The U.S. and the World's Recession

Roberto Rigobon summarizes preliminary research on worldwide inflation and recession, data that bring some grim tidings about our global economic state of health.
