Macroeconomics of Climate Change in a Dualistic Economy generates significant, genuinely novel insights about dual economies and sustainable economic growth. These insights are generalizable and applicable worldwide. Its authors overcome existing limitations in general equilibrium modelling, and by concentrating on tensions between green growth and dualism they consider the global efforts against climate change and the opposition by specific countries based on economic development needs. Using Turkey as their primary example, they address these two most discussed and difficult issues related to policy setting. Their work blazes a path for those who seek an applied economic research framework for studying such economic considerations.
