The Impact of South Africa’s Carbon Tax

Vivid Economics worked with the National Treasury of South Africa to interpret and present the results of a macroeconomic modelling exercise examining the impacts of a carbon tax on the South African economy. The analysis shows that a carefully designed tax will have only modest macroeconomic impacts, although there will be important winners and losers at the sectoral level.
