November Guest Speaker

Rob Williams from Resources for the Future

Rob Williams, Resources for the Future

Our guest for the November call is Rob Williams, Senior Fellow and Director of Academic Programs at Resources for the Future (RFF). He’ll discuss results from two recent papers RFF published that examine the different impacts a revenue-neutral carbon fee would have across U.S. states and across income quintiles if the revenue was recycled to reduce corporate taxes, to reduce payroll taxes, or returned as a dividend. Rob and his RFF colleague Dallas Burtraw will also be featured at the Nov. 19 briefings on Capitol Hill before members of Congress.

Rob holds a PhD in economics from Stanford and is a professor at the University of Maryland, College Park. He is also a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
