Dr. Light specializes in Computable General Equilibrium modeling (CGE). He uses quantitative economics to provide expert analysis for policymakers who must consider the benefits and costs underlying most public policy decisions. CGE modeling combines modern economic theory with data to supply measurable regional or national indicators, such as GDP, employment, price effects, production changes, or pollution levels. Dr. Light’s projects vary widely, from the impact of carbon abatement policy upon world fossil fuel markets, to the effects of maritime regulations upon coastal economies on the US eastern seaboard. Dr. Light is based at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
