Seminar: Climate Shocks and (very) Long-Run Productivity, Carl-Johan Lars Dalgaard
Professor Carl-Johan Lars Dalgaard from the Department of Economics, UCPH, will give a presentation on the paper: Climate Shocks and (very) Long-Run Productivity (pdf) (Carl-Johan Lars Dalgaard, Casper Worm Hansen and Nicolai Kaarsen).
Dalgaard, Worm Hansen and Kaarsen among other things state the following in the conclusion:
"Our best estimates suggest that the shift from the Medieval Warm period to the Little Ice Age was contractionary in nature: lower temperatures instigated slower productivity growth."
The seminar is an open lunch seminar.
