Furthermore, it focuses on Overlapping Generations (OLG) models applied to environmental problems and it studies some recent papers on tradable emission permits in view to analyse economic impacts of those permits on greenhouse gas phenomena and/or climate change.

 

Keywords : General equilibrium, Overlapping generations, Tradable emission permits, OLG models
