“Distribution of Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform in Indonesia,”
Corbett Grainger, assistant professor Agriculture and Applied Economics; faculty affiliate, GHI and the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies.
At a time when cutting carbon emissions is a top concern to mitigate climate change, global fossil fuel subsidies have grown significantly over the past decade. The purpose of this research proposal is to determine the impact of subsidies on exporting industries, which in turn will help understand the political economy of subsidies and how governments could effectively eliminate them. This proposal lays out a strategy to estimate the impact of fossil fuel subsidies on different measures of exports and growth at the sector level in Indonesia, a country that has recently implemented a series of subsidy reforms.
