Energy Pricing and Costs, and Policy for America’s Future

Summary:
The Hamilton Project’s new study “A Strategy for America’s Energy Future: Illuminating Energy’s Full Costs” starts from the precept that energy consumption is critical to economic growth and our quality of life, but that we have some unintended and unaddressed negative consequences, and that the goal of our energy and climate policy must be to improve Americans’ well-being. Our energy choices do not currently address the social costs such as shorter lives, higher health care expenses, a changing climate, and weakened national security. While these costs are not captured in the retail price, we certainly are paying for them, and dearly.
