Remembering Martin Feldstein


Martin S. Feldstein was Reagan’s chief economic adviser and one of the most influential economists of his generation. He was a Professor of Economics at Harvard University and served as Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers to President Ronald Reagan as well as President of the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Within the economics profession, he was a towering figure. Few economists in modern memory can rival his impact on the field.
— Kenneth S. Rogoff

Notably, Feldstein was also an original co-author of the The Conservative Case for Carbon Dividends, a Founding Member of the Climate Leadership Council, and an original Co-Signatory of the record-breaking “Economists' Statement on Carbon Dividends.”

Here are his remarks in support of Carbon Dividends from February 2017:
