Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • World War II
  • Capitalism

William D. Nordhaus mostly deals with Climate change, Natural resource economics, Global warming, Greenhouse gas and Damages. His Climate change research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Dice and Economy. His studies in Natural resource economics integrate themes in fields like Meteorology, Economic cost, Environmental resource management and Global climate.

His Global warming research incorporates elements of Economic impact analysis, Kyoto Protocol and Politics. His Greenhouse gas research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Microeconomics and Environmental protection. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cost–benefit analysis and Externality in addition to Damages.

His most cited work include:

  • The political business cycle (2581 citations)
  • The Impact of Global Warming on Agriculture: A Ricardian Analysis: Reply (1249 citations)
  • A Review of the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change (1198 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

William D. Nordhaus spends much of his time researching Climate change, Econometrics, Global warming, Natural resource economics and Productivity. William D. Nordhaus mostly deals with DICE model in his studies of Climate change. His work focuses on many connections between Econometrics and other disciplines, such as Public economics, that overlap with his field of interest in Consumption.

His Global warming research integrates issues from Economic impact analysis, Marginal cost, Kyoto Protocol and Economic cost. His Natural resource economics study frequently links to other fields, such as Greenhouse gas. The various areas that he examines in his Productivity study include New economy, Economy, Labour economics and Slowdown.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climate change (30.14%)
  • Econometrics (29.19%)
  • Global warming (20.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Climate change (30.14%)
  • Econometrics (29.19%)
  • Social cost (14.11%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Climate change, Econometrics, Social cost, Natural resource economics and DICE model. His work on Global warming as part of general Climate change study is frequently connected to Term, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His work in Econometrics addresses subjects such as Statistics, which are connected to disciplines such as Convexity.

His research investigates the link between Social cost and topics such as Economic impact analysis that cross with problems in Physical geography. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Natural resource economics, Public economics is strongly linked to Greenhouse gas. His Dice study incorporates themes from Regional science and Damages.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Regional Dynamic General-Equilibrium Model of Alternative Climate-Change Strategies (790 citations)
  • Climate Clubs: Overcoming Free-riding in International Climate Policy † (299 citations)
  • Revisiting the social cost of carbon (274 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • World War II
  • Capitalism

William D. Nordhaus mainly focuses on Climate change, Natural resource economics, Microeconomics, Global warming and Neoclassical economics. His Climate change study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Dice, Economy and Social cost. His Social cost course of study focuses on Parametric statistics and Econometrics.

His Natural resource economics research includes themes of Global commons, Greenhouse gas and Global climate. His Microeconomics study combines topics in areas such as Volatility, Agency and Cost–benefit analysis. His work on Effects of global warming as part of general Global warming study is frequently linked to Long term growth, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
