Increasing CAFE Standards: Still a Very Bad Idea
AbstractIn a recent Joint Center Working Paper, Gerard and Lave respond to our recent work critiquing proposed increases in existing Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards. Gerard and Laveassert that, at least in the right environment, there is a place for CAFE standards. We suggest, however, that Gerard and Lavehave not really made any dent in our arguments, and have not provided any rationale for the CAFE program to exist. Indeed, much of the Gerard and Lave'sargument is self-contradictory.
