How The Wall Street Journal Reported on “The Price of Climate”

How The Wall Street Journal Reported on “The Price of Climate”. By Veer Mudambi. Global Investigative Journalism Network.
„In financial markets, you have a pretty clear concept that the prices of things are a reflection of their present value and their values into the future. If you hypothesize that climate change has a long-term effect on the world, you should be able to see that in the asset prices and the cost of insurance and you should see today how the buyers and sellers of assets discount or increase their prices to account for the future effects of climate.
In trying to use the magic of financial markets, we can have a telescope into the future of how people anticipate the effects of climate. It would result in a “great re-pricing,” where climate would change the values of assets all across the world as the climate changed, so the series went from there to try and see where we would see that reflected in prices.“
