A smart primer on how to distribute auction revenue.
Over at Washington Budget and Policy Center, Kate Barber has a smart new paper out: How To Lower Costs of Climate Change Policies for Consumers (pdf).
It's a good practical guide for how to make climate policy fair, a subject that is of course near and dear to Sightline's heart. In the context of using auction revenue to protect low income consumers from the effects of carbon pricing, Kate explores the merits of several mechanisms for actually distributing revenue to consumers. If you're into climate fairness, it's definitely worth a read.
