Down the Rabbit Hole

Via the folks at Resources for the Future:

Employment Effects of Regulation

New research by Industrial Economics, Inc. suggests that EPA’s Clean Power Plan “would create more than a quarter of a million jobs” by 2040. The report notes that coal industry jobs lost due to the stringency of the regulations would be “offset not only by investments in cleaner sources of power, but also by productivity gains across the whole economy.”

So, we get more expensive electricity using more people to get it. Progress!
