From the Publisher'The collection of papers, Benefit Assessment: The State of the Art, is a carefully planned and comprehensive survey of the different methods needed for different purposes. It is by far the best source for practical use. The component papers are soundly based on fundamentals but recognize the practical problems of implementation and are a tribute to the possibilities achievable with ingenuity and insight.'
Prof. Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University, Nobel Prize Winner for Economics 1972
'The authors and editors deserve warm congratulations on a job well done. Their report is a valuable survey of virtually all the methods now used to estimate and appraise the benefits of public regulatory programs, together with their conceptual foundations. Anyone involved in the process of regulatory assessment will benefit from its insights and from having it on his/her reference shelf.'
Prof. Robert Dorfman, Harvard University
'This book provides exactly what its title promises - the state of the art in benefits assessment. It is now the authoritative work in its field. Insofar as the subject will allow, Benefits Assessment is clear, succinct, helpful, and sophisticated.'
