Om Bjart Holtsmark

I have two main research topics: Climate policy and taxation policy.

Currently I am working on a joint paper with Martin L. Weitzman (Economics Department, Harvard University) on the effects of linking permit markets. Here we investigate whether such linking will increase or reduce total emissions.

Within public economics, I am working on two papers, both on the theory of taxation and the question of the size of the marginal cost of public funds. One of these papers is a joint work with Åsmund Sunde Valseth (Norwegian Ministry of Finance) and Katinka Holtsmark (Economics Department, University of Oslo). In this paper we  provide a new and improved measure of the marginal costs of public funds. The other paper is single authored and is a response to recent claims that the marginal cost of public funds is one.

Doctoral Thesis:  Seven essays on policises and international cooperation to abate emissions of greenhouse gases
