From the Publisher'Environmental regulations are an increasingly prominent issue for the federal government, and as such, the regulatory process recently has generated intense controversy. This book provides an in-depth analysis of three major environmental regulations, and constructively brings together key critics and advocates of current practices. Most importantly, the book provides concrete and timely recommendations for improving regulatory review.'
Ted Gayer, Georgetown University Public Policy Institute
'I applaud this project. The report brings together some of the staunchest advocates and critics of cost-benefit analysis and offers some very good, sensible recommendations on what should be done to improve the way that these analyses are conducted. That's an extremely important accomplishment for the policy community.'
Richard Revesz, New York University School of Law
'For those convinced that cost-benefit analysis will survive, in spite of cogent arguments against its utility in the environmental realm, this book is a must read. It provides detailed case studies of the use and abuse of Cost-Benefit Analysis and thoughtful recommendations for improving its use.'
David M. Driesen, Syracuse University College of Law
'This book acknowledges, but does not dwell on, the strengths and weaknesses of Cost-Benefit Analysis in regulatory development and review. Instead of continuing the ''tis to, 'tis not' debate, it looks for common ground and crafts productive proposals to improve the process. An important book for those who wish to continue the old debate and an essential one for those who can get beyond it.'
Sally Katzen, former administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget (1993-1998)
