"The application of cost-benefit analysis to environmental regulation is widely believed to have an inherent conservative bias. As Revesz and Livermore show in compelling detail, this is wrong. Cost-benefit analysis is simply a disciplined method of rationally assessing the consequences of proposed courses of action."
Richard Posner, Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and author of Economic Analysis of Law (7th ed. 2007)
"Revesz and Livermore provide a thoughtful and compelling analysis of how cost-benefit analysis can and should be used to further the public good."
Richard A. Meserve, President of the Carnegie Institution of Washington and former Chairman, US Nuclear Regulatory Commission
