Are Britain's clean car goals sufficiently ambitious?

Graham Watson

22nd May 2018

An interesting story today, arguing that the government's clean air targets for cars are actually too lax, and compared with some nations initiatives, this would seem to be the case.

However, in Economics we should all be aware of the fact that incremental change often reduces the risk of government failure and that empirically we should probably talk rather more about second mover advantage rather than first.
