    ... since if people can do without the permit at a modest price, it means that we can certainly afford to overshoot the target.

    I still argue for a total dividend payout, on the same argument that if the carbon fee is a net short term drag on the economy, it will be harder to defend.

    The dividend also offers the opportunity for a list of qualified items for forward finance from future dividend payments, and that leverage could substantially increase support for the Carbon fee.
