Reversing Climate Change: How Carbon Removals Can Resolve Climate Change and Fix the Economy

The Kyoto Protocol capped the emissions of the main emitters, the industrialized countries, one by one. It also created an innovative financial mechanism, the Carbon Market and its Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which allows developing nations to receive carbon credits when they reduce their emissions below their baselines. The carbon market, an economic system that created a price for carbon for the first time, is now used in four continents, is promoted by the World Bank, and is recommended even by leading oil and gas companies. However, one critical problem for the future of the Kyoto Protocol is the continuing impasse between the rich and the poor nations.

Who should reduce emissions — the rich or the poor countries?

Reversing Climate Change is a must read for academics and professionals studying, implementing, and analyzing global climate change policies; interested, advanced undergraduates, and postgraduates interested in the follow up of the Kyoto Protocol and UNFCCC 1992 founding.

Reversing Climate Change is available for purchase today at (print and kindle versions);; Barnes and Noble; among other online properties where books are sold.

Handbook on the Economics of Climate Change – 2018 By Graciela Chichilnisky and Armon Rezai

This Handbook presents new ideas and policies at a time when economic sciences start to recognize the inevitable emergence of climate change as the defining topic of our time.
Economic thinking is evolving in front of our eyes, calling for reflexion. We now know that climate change embodies and forecasts the future of human civilization and therefore its economic organization. It is the purpose of the Handbook to contribute to the transformation of economics in the midst of this momentuous evolution.

The Economics of the Global Environment, Catastrophic Risks in Theory and Policy – 2016 By Graciela Chichilnisky and Armon Rezai

This is the first book combining research on the Global Environment, Catastrophic Risks and Economic Theory and Policy. Modern economic theory originated in the middle of the twentieth century when industrial expansion coupled with population growth led to a voracious use of natural resources and global environmental concerns. It is uncontested that, for the first time in recorded history, humans dominate the planet, changing the planet’s atmosphere, its bodies of water, and the complex web of species that makes life on earth.

The Evolving International Economy (Paperback) – 2006 By Graciela Chichilnisky and‎ Geoffrey M. Heal

This book focuses on the main issues of trade and development, and on the attainment of the major development goals generally espoused in the international community: rapid development in the Third World, sustained economic expansion in the industrial countries and the eradication of deep inequalities and of extreme poverty. It consists of four parts. The first three give an overall analysis of the world economy, with commentary and conclusions on major issues of trade and development.

Topology and Markets – 1999 By Graciela Chichilnisky

This volume presents the proceedings of a workshop on geometry, topology, and markets held at The Fields Institute. The workshop was attended by eminent mathematicians and financial and economic theorists. Using a topological approach, the volume discusses new mathematics and its applications to social sciences and financial markets. Topics addressed at the workshop included new topological invariants for existence, characterization and computation of market equilibria and their relation to social choice and to other forms of resource allocation, competitive and co-operative systems, algebraic geometry and markets with increasing returns, computational complexity, and stochastic processes and financial markets.

Mathematical Economics, vol. I, II, and III – 1998 By Graciela Chichilnisky

Mathematical Economics is an authoritative collection of the most influential contributions essential to an understanding of this important area of economic science. These seminal papers illustrate the development of the field from its inception in the 19th century up to the present, and exhibit the power of mathematics to lead to new thinking which can illuminate the scientific structures underlying economic arguments. Many of these papers started new fields of economics, influencing deeply the way economists think about their world. They illustrate the extensive range of topics to which mathematics has been applied productively, and show the areas of mathematics which have proved valuable, including functional analysis, linear algebra, algebraic and differential topology, stochastic processes and dynamical systems.

Oil in the International Economy – 1991 By Graciela Chichilnisky and Geoffrey M. Heal

This book examines the economic institutions through which oil is produced, traded, and consumed, and their interactions with national and international economic systems. The oil market occupies a central role in the international economy, and in the economies of many producing and consuming countries. It is impossible to understand the economic forces driving this market without grasping how it relates to the world’s economic and financial systems. The authors approach their subject by developing and blending two schools with economic theory–the analysis of markets for oil and other exhaustible resources as asset markets, and the use of general equilibrium models to study both trade between industrial and developing countries and the macroeconomic impact of commodity price movements.

Development and Global Finance: The Case for an International Bank for Environmental Settlements – 1997 By Graciela Chichilnisky G. Heal and S. Vercelli

There is growing consensus that development cannot simply be equated with economic growth. Develop­ment-if it is to be sustainable and people-centered-must seek to reconcile economic, social and environmental concerns. Yet, while the concept of sustainable human development (SHD) is increasingly being recognized, policy-makers are often at a loss when it comes to “doing” SHD. Practical and pragmatic policy options for implementing the SHD paradigm are still lacking.
