Cost-benefit Analysis by Matthew D. Adler

Book Description

Cost-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

Books By Author Matthew D. Adler

Oxford Handbook of Well-Being and Public Policy by Matthew D. Adler Oxford Handbook of Well-Being and Public Policy, Hardback (June 2016)

What are the best tools for designing governmental policy in light of human well-being? The Handbook provides a comprehensive treatment of this topic, drawing on economics, philosophy, and psychology.

New Foundations of Cost-Benefit Analysis by Matthew D. Adler New Foundations of Cost-Benefit Analysis, Hardback (September 2006)

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.
