Net Benefits of CAFE stadards

I just frittered away an hour poking holes in a 2002 paper from the American Enterprise Institute and the Brooking Institution that purports to show a net cost to society from higher CAFE standards. Even using the paper’s questionable results, my calculation show an a posteriori net benefit had CAFE standards been raised at the time the paper was written.

Here are links to the original article on Knowledge Problem that spurred me to defend CAFE standards, a link to the AEI/Brookings paper, and my comments on the weaknesses in the paper’s analysis.
