Q&A with Matthew Kahn on Climate Change Adaptation

This week’s Q&A is with Matthew Kahn, a professor at the UCLA Institute of the Environment in the Departments of Economics and Public Policy, and the author of the recent book Climatopolis. Kahn is a 2011 PERC Lone Mountain Fellow and co-director of PERC’s recent workshop on climate change adaptation. He blogs at Environmental and Urban Economics.

We sat down with Kahn last week for a short video interview on how free markets can help us adapt to climate change. For more PERC Q&As, visit the Q&A archives.
