Applied Cost-Benefit Analysis (2nd Edition) by Robert J. Brent

By Robert J. Brent

This totally up to date re-creation maintains within the vein of its predecessor through viewing cost-benefit research as utilized welfare economics, whereas while development at the previous framework by way of extending the speculation and supplying extra purposes in each one chapter.
New for this version are analyses of thought comparable purposes in psychological overall healthiness, condom social advertising courses, woman basic schooling as a way of forestalling HIV/AIDS and the pricing of typical fuel. offered in an built-in demeanour, the theoretical techniques are developed round the major construction blocks of CBA, similar to shadow pricing, distribution weights, the social price and the marginal price of public funds.

This variation will cement the book's position as an incredible and obtainable textual content within the box and should be of serious curiosity to graduate and undergraduate scholars of welfare economics and microeconomic idea, in addition to govt economists concerned with any zone of public coverage.
