Dr. Nahid Aslanbeigui, Jack. T. Kvernland Professor of Philosophy and Corporate Social Policy, was interviewed for a National Public Radio (NPR) podcast on carbon taxes, a solution to controlling the effects of global climate change. Her book, Arthur Cecil Pigou (jointly authored with Monmouth University Prof. Emeritus Guy Oakes and published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2015), is the intellectual biography of the British economist (1877-1959) who in 1912 proposed a tax—now known as the Pigou tax—on air pollution to reduce the harm consumers and businesses created for their fellow citizens.
