BOOKS AND PROCEEDINGS... ECONOMICS & TAXATION

Managing the Global Commons--The Economics of Climate Change, W.D. Nordhaus, 232 pp., 1994, $32.50 (MIT).

Provides a detailed analysis of DICE (Dynamic Integrated Model of Climate and Economy) and its results. An important advance is the construction of a small model to encompass the primary components of the climate-economic system within an optimization framework.

Observes that even with technological breakthroughs and controls, the momentum of past greenhouse gas emissions, coupled with great inertia in climate change policy, will lead to an inevitable rendezvous with massive climate change.
