Cost-benefit Analysis by Matthew D. Adler
Book DescriptionCost-benefit analysis is a widely used governmental evaluation tool, though academics remain skeptical. This volume gathers prominent contributors from law, economics, and philosophy for discussion of cost-benefit analysis, specifically its moral foundations, applications and limitations. This new scholarly debate includes not only economists, but also contributors from philosophy, cognitive psychology, legal studies, and public policy who can further illuminate the justification and moral implications of this method and specify alternative measures. These articles originally appeared in the "Journal of Legal Studies." Contributors: - Matthew D. Adler - Gary S. Becker - John Broome - Robert H. Frank - Robert W. Hahn - Lewis A. Kornhauser - Martha C. Nussbaum - Eric A. Posner - Richard A. Posner - Henry S. Richardson - Amartya Sen - Cass R. Sunstein - W. Kip Viscusi

New Foundations of Cost-Benefit Analysis, Hardback (September 2006)» View all books by Matthew D. Adler
Reconceptualizes cost-benefit analysis, arguing that its objective should be overall well-being rather than economic efficiency. This work shows why the link between preferences and well-being is more complicated than economists have thought. It places cost-benefit analysis on a firmer theoretical foundation.
