Non-Cooperative and Cooperative Responses to Climate Catastrophes in the Global Economy: A North-South Perspective

The optimal response to a potential productivity shock which becomes more imminent with global warming is to have carbon taxes to curb the risk of a calamity and to accumulate precautionary capital to facilitate smoothing of consumption.
