The carbon market privatises the atmosphere of the planet, but favours the poor nations who have more rights to emit; as a result $50 billion has so far been transferred from rich to poor nations for productive projects that have allowed their economies to reduce carbon and leapfrog into clean development strategies, avoiding the heavy industrialization followed by rich nations.
