Brown Bag Seminar in Economics and Finance ­­­­presented by Anton Hasselgren, Jönköping International Business School


Title: Is interest in climate change affected by perceived economic conditions?



Date: Monday, April 26
Time: 12:10-12:55

Zoom: https://ju-se.zoom.us/j/65965469113

In this early working paper, we show that perceived economic conditions (sentiment) positively predicts the amount of Google searches on climate-change related topics. The effect is unrelated to business cycle fluctuations and abnormal weather conditions, and is not sensitive to the choice of Google search terms. The results help us understand the drivers of public interest and can inform policy makers and change management strategies.
