    2002, 200 pages, 6 x 9, Paperback

    With the Republican Party in control of both the Legislative and Executive branches, cost-benefit analysis will undoubtedly play an even more prominent role in the analysis of proposed new regulations and even to existing regulations. This book, initially published in 2002, addressed the essential issues at that time and continues to frame them today.

    Highly readable, the guide explores conflicting interests surrounding such complex issues as:


    • Setting a value on human life and health;
    • Approaches to judicial review of CBA and Risk Assessment;
    • Requiring agencies to take account of costs, to exempt trivial risks, and to consider the substitute risks introduced by regulation;
    • Minimizing the influence of special interest groups; and 
    • Protecting future generations' interests.

    The principles and issues articulated here will be central to the debate over the increasing significance and stringency of cost-benefit analysis and to its implementation. This important guide will be of particular value to administrative and government lawyers, as well as those in the environmental and health law fields.
