Sandor got Obama nod on seed money for cap-and-trade model

A Brooklyn-born economist who gave up teaching at the University of California at Berkeley in 1973 to trade the first Treasury-bond futures is getting his way with the biggest change in U.S. environmental policy in 20 years. And he has an unwitting ally from Chicago.

Legislation to let polluters buy and sell carbon-dioxide emissions like pork bellies is the outgrowth of that economist, Richard L. Sandor. He founded the Chicago-based network known as Chicago Climate Exchange, which started six years ago with $1.1 million of seed money from the citys Joyce Foundation.

| Sourced From Economist.com |

WAITING for the perfect wave, surf-riders at Newcastle seem oblivious to the cargo ships just beyond.
