USC In the News 6/7/2017

Harvard Business Review featured commentary by Jonathan Eyer of the USC Price School and Matthew Kahn of the USC Dornsife College on how Democratic-leaning states and their governors can effectively fight climate change under President Trump. Eyer and Kahn argue that an aggressive policy by these more prosperous Democratic-leaning states can act as research and development for the rest of the country when it comes to developing effective climate change solutions. "Given Trump’s action, the nation will benefit if the blue states stick to their plan to make the green push on their own. For any unproven technology, we need 'first movers' who are willing to try out the first generation of a product. Technologies that prove to be cost-effective can then be adopted by the rest of the nation."
