HD 47.4 Cost effectiveness
Abstract: The author succeeds in bringing together many interesting real-life applications of CBA in various areas (including among others health, environment and transportation). The examples are well chosen to illustrate the basic issues and show clearly the crucial importance of theoretical and methodological assumptions. Moreover, they are presented in an accessible and attractive way. For those who know already the principles of CBA, these applications are stimulating and enjoyable reading.
Erik Schokkaert, Tijdschrift voor Economie en Management
This fully updated new edition continues in the vein of its predecessor by viewing costbenefit analysis as applied welfare economics, while at the same time building on the earlier framework by extending the theory and providing further applications in each chapter.
New for this edition are analyses of theory related applications in mental health, condom social marketing programs, female primary education as a means of preventing HIV/AIDS and the pricing of natural gas. Presented in an integrated manner, the theoretical concepts are constructed around the main building blocks of CBA, such as shadow pricing, distribution weights, the social discount rate and the marginal cost of public funds.
This edition will cement the books place as a major and accessible text in the field and will be of great interest to graduate and undergraduate students of welfare economics and microeconomic theory, as well as government economists involved with any area of public policy.
