Energy seems bound to stay in the news one way or another, whether it’s bills and competition policy, or fracking, or energy market reform, or the climate change debate. So anybody who didn’t read Dieter Helm’s [amazon_link id=”0300186592″ target=”_blank” ]The Carbon Crunch[/amazon_link] when it was first out can now pick up the paperback. I reviewed it at the time. It’s a clear and well-argued read, as you would expect from a doyen of energy economics. Dieter also has an interesting article on infrastructure and the state due out in the Oxford Review of Economic Policy – it will be available in early August via his website, links on the right hand side.

Also, next year the edited volume by Dieter Helm and Cameron Hepburn (a future doyen),
