Description: 

This short course is offered by the RTG.

Prof. Martimort's part: see attachment.

Prof. Sand's part: This lecture intends to provide a global view on climate agreements in a setting where asymmetric information matters, using the tools of mechanism design. The first part tackles pollution problems where one agent (or group of agents) can affect the well-being of another group of agents. In particular, we will review the work of Kwerel (RES, 1977), Montero (AER, 2008), and Rob (JET, 1989). In the second part, we analyze the case of global public goods and international agreements where all agents have an impact on the environment and at the same time suffer/benefit from the actions of the others. The analysis will be based on articles by Helm-Wirl (JEEM, 2014) and Martimort-Sand-Zantman (2012, CJE 2013).
