Key points
The Australian economy and the global economy both continue to growstrongly at the same time as we cut pollution to reduce the risks o dangerousclimate change.Early global action is cheaper than delayed action. For economies like Australia, deerring action on climate change will only lead to higher long-termcosts as emission-intensive technology, processes and outputs are locked in.Pricing carbon will drive structural change in the economy, moving productiontowards less emission-intensive industries. Many o Australia’s industries willmaintain or improve their competitiveness in a carbon constrained world.The structural change in the economy driven by a market-based carbon pricingmechanism will be modest compared to other changes acing the economy,such as those driven by the terms o trade or demographic change.Incomes grow strongly under carbon pricing. By 2020, income per person isaround $9,000 higher in today’s dollars.Jobs will continue to grow under carbon pricing. By 2020, national employmentis projected to increase by 1.6 million jobs, with or without carbon pricing.Household consumption continues to grow strongly over time. The impact onthe overall price level is modest.The modelling provides inormation on only one element necessary orevaluating climate change policy: the costs o taking action. It does notmeasure the benets o tackling climate change.
The modelling results presented here are rom the core policy scenario undertaken by Treasury. Further scenario details can be ound onpage 17, and more detail on this and other scenarios can be ound at www.treasury.gov.au/carbonpricemodelling.
