    The EU’s Disastrous Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), with Harald Fadinger

    The EU’s Disastrous Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), with Harald Fadinger

    We discuss with Prof. Harald Fadinger (University of Mannheim) how the EU taxes the carbon content of imported goods via its Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM).

    We critically review the effectivenes of CBAM to prevent "carbon leakage", i.e., the international reallocation of production to locations with low carbon prices, and its effect on the international competitiveness of EU firms. CBAM appears to perform badly on both of these and a number of other fronts.

    We also discuss alternative approaches for international carbon price adjustments, partly based on research by Harald and his coauthors:

    "Designing Effective Carbon Border Adjustment with Minimal Information Requirements. Theory and Empirics", by A. Campolmi, H. Fadinger, C. Forlati, S. Stillger and U. Wagner.

    How Much of the Decline in Inflation Is Due to ECB Policy?

    How Much of the Decline in Inflation Is Due to ECB Policy?

    Euro Area inflation fell like a rock: from the peak of 10.6%, reached in October 2022, it dropped to levels below 3% a year later. We analyze how much of this decline can be attributed to policy tightening by the ECB. We find that the direct effect of ECB policy is likely small. ECB policy may have had important indirect effecta via anchoring inflation expectations, but quantifying this effect is difficult.
