Abstract

type="main" xml:id="ecpa12097-abs-0001"> The economic implications for Australia for replacing its carbon tax policy with an Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) scheme are examined. A computable general equilibrium model is used to show that the budget allocated for the ERF provides about 50 per cent of that required to meet Australia's greenhouse gas abatement commitments.
