The U.S. Economy in WWII as a Model for Coping with Climate Change

Hugh Rockoff

NBER Working Paper No. 22590
Issued in September 2016

---- Acknowledgments ----

This paper was prepared for “Coping with Scarcity: Energy Shortages, Food Crises, Drought, and Critical Materials in the Modern World (c. 1800 to the present),” a conference at Caltech, November 15-16, 2014, organized by John Brewer and Frank Trentmann. I thank the participants in the conference for many helpful suggestions and stimulating questions. I also thank my colleague Hilary Sigman for a discussion of the issues involved in trying to make use of the wartime model. Jessica Jiang provided excellent research assistance. I am responsible for the remaining errors. The views expressed herein are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
