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!
