The social cost of climate change is unknown and may remain so in the next 50-100 years. We develop a tractable stochastic climate-economy model with a hidden-state impact process to show that climate policies are extremely robust to delays of hard information. Taking a dataset of estimates for the social cost as a representation of current beliefs on(More)
Abstract: This paper investigates the role of emissions control on reducing the tail-effect of the fat-tailed distribution of the climate sensitivity. Through a simple analysis on temperature distributions and some numerical simulations using the well-known DICE model, we find that the option for emissions control effectively prevents the tail-effect.(More)
Currently available political economic tools are not very useful for predicting the outcomes of real-world policy problems. Researchers have limited information on which to assign parameters to the mappings from policies to outcomes to utilities or to represent the political process adequately. We present a method for evaluating the viability of political(More)
The efficient use of space and energy is achieved in a new implantable total artificial heart (TAH). To fit the orthotopic thoracic space, toroidal blood pumps encircle an energy converter, consisting of a centrifugal hydraulic fluid pump and a rotary reversing valve. The new centrifugal pump produces cardiac outputs of 6 L/min, with an average hydraulic(More)
How does future income uncertainty a↵ect child labour and human capital accumulation? Using a unique panel dataset, we examine the e↵ect of changes in climate variability on the allocation of time among child labour activities (the intensive margin) as well as participation in education and labour activities (the extensive margin). We find robust evidence(More)
