So that, for the class of models we shall be using, there is a general presumption that, even allowing for irreversibility, current emissions will be higher when there is the possibility of learning than when there is no such possibility, unless the irreversibility constraint is very severe. Again, the key point for this paper is that all the analysis of learning and irreversibility cited above assume a single decision maker, so would only apply if there was a single world government, or a complete international agreement.
43 Thus Proposition 1 essentially confirms for our model the results in terms of pollution emissions and concentrations found by Hoel (1992a) and van der Ploeg and de Zeeuw (1992); the new element is that their results were derived under conditions of certainty, while these allow for both uncertainty and learning. Nevertheless these results are not very surprising. We now turn to the comparison of learning and no learning, and in particular the aggregate level of period 0 emissions. e. the possibility of learning would lead a single world government to postpone some of its reductions in emissions until it learns the true state of the world.
If we introduce both non-cooperative behaviour and learning we move to tOol. We are interested in the ratio tOol/tOcn, and how it decomposes into a factor due to non-cooperation and a factor due to learning. 8b) In the first decomposition the first factor represents non-cooperation, the second learning; in the second decomposition the first factor represents learning and the second non-cooperation. 8) and asking whether in each decomposition the two ratios on the right hand-side are greater than 1, in which case our two explanations reinforce each other.
