  A growing number of people see climate change as an example of the tragedy of the commons: the ‘over-grazing’ of collectively owned open lands by an unstructured group of people. The logic of individual self-interest will lead each and every individual to try to steal a march on the rest of the group before the rest over-exploit those open lands. What an insightful course! It's an eye opener to the fact that a stone (policy instrument) can be deployed to kill several birds. With this course, I am gaining a deeper understanding that it can be a win-win situation for policy makers and carbon emitters vis-à-vis the larger society.
