    Climate change could lead to greatest market failure ever: Nicholas Stern

    Climate economist Nicholas Stern said he had understated the risks of climate change and the case for taking action in his landmark 2006 report titled the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change that said climate change could lead to the greatest market failure ever.

    Stern, who has been tracking the impact of the latest climate science on economics, said the consequences have been far more devastating than he thought.

    The Indian economy is still performing well, with foreign investment and looser regulations driving significant growth in the country. However, low living standards and a host of socioeconomic issues are impeding its ascension to ‘developed’ market status.

    Palanpur, a fascinating story of income growth, social change

    Palanpur is a relatively unknown small village in Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh. However, it has a special place in development economics because of a research project that has stretched over seven decades. Economists have conducted seven detailed surveys of Palanpur since the 1950s, a rare longitudinal database that shows how the village has changed over three generations.

    Immediate fossil fuel phaseout could arrest climate change – study

    Nicholas Stern said: “We are rapidly approaching the end of the age of fossil fuels. This study confirms that all new energy infrastructure must be sustainable from now on if we are to avoid locking in commitments to emissions that would lead to the world exceeding the goals of the Paris agreement.”

    Why Pakistan IMF bailout talks matter to India

    'Pakistan’s perennial dependence on foreign funds has meant that it is dependent on external donors to stabilize its economy. A 2012 research paper by former IMF advisors Ehtisham Ahmad and Azizali Mohammed, says that years of financial assistance by the US and US-aligned multilateral institutions have left no incentive for Pakistan to introduce structural reforms.'

    We must reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero or face more floods

    'The authoritative new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change sets the world a clear target: we must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases to net zero by the middle of this century to have a reasonable chance of limiting global warming to 1.5C. Every government should read this report and recognise the clear choice we now have.' Nicholas Stern.

    Nicholas Stern - How Lives Change

    Can we really measure social mobility and changing life circumstances? Nicholas Stern, with his co-authors Himanshu and Peter Lanjouw, sought to answer key questions about development economics in a 70 year study of Indian village Palanpur.

    Polluter pays: How can governments build public support for carbon taxes?

    Study co-authored by Lord Stern argues governments should focus on building public support for strong carbon pricing, rather than limiting themselves to economic arguments.

    The rich can survive on a polluted planet, the poor cannot — a carbon tax is the great equalizer

    Nicholas Stern has argued that a carbon price should be set high, at around $40-80 per ton of carbon dioxide by 2020, and $50-100 by 2030 to deliver the goals of the Paris Agreement. Without a carbon price, the economy responds to powerful interests at the expense of building a cleaner world for everyone.

    Climate change will force us to redefine economic growth

    Last Friday, Pope Francis called for nothing less than "a financial paradigm shift" in order to tackle climate change. His comments, made at a conference hosted by the Vatican and uniting business people, policy-makers of different stripes, indigenous leaders, academics and young people, could not be more timely: humanity is at a turning point.
