Harris Public Policy Assistant Professor Amir Jina

Harris Public Policy Assistant Professor Amir Jina was featured in Gizmodo discussing his study on the economic costs of the 2018 California wildfire season and the benefits of climate policy. 

“We talk a lot in policy about the costs of a policy (e.g., the $2 trillion Biden plan and all that) but we rarely ever frame these costs as bringing benefits,” said Jina. “There’s a return on that $2 trillion investment that we never ever talk about, and this makes it hard to make climate policy gain traction with people. The broader purpose of studies like this gives us an opportunity to understand that there are benefits to climate policy in terms of our wallets, but also our health and well-being.”
