The energy crisis is seen by many as the greatest social problem of our time. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the development of alternative fuels are some of the key issues energy experts grapple with in an ongoing dialogue about the relationship between energy markets and transportation technology.
Robert Topel, labor economics professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, moderated a discussion at the school’s 60th Annual Management Conference in which industry experts explored solutions such as alternative fuels and transportation technologies that help reduce greenhouse emissions.
While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, Professor Topel, in the video, explains how once you solve the problem of energy consumption, “other things fall into place.”
