9781848449572: Handbook of Cost-Benefit Analysis (Elgar original reference)

This Handbook provides an authoritative overview of current research in the field of cost-benefit analysis and is designed as a starting point for those interested in undertaking advanced research. The Handbook contains major contributions to the development of the field, focussing on standard microeconomic policy evaluations, the relatively neglected area of macroeconomic policy and its integration into a formal CBA framework, and dynamic considerations in CBA.

Presenting insights from many influential thinkers, and edited by a leading academic in the field, this comprehensive work will prove an invaluable reference tool for economists, researchers and scholars.

Review:

Anyone interested in cost-benefit analysis will find this anthology valuable.
--E. Kacapyr, Choice

This book breathes new life into an old but intellectually robust field by applying the principles of cost-benefit analysis to contemporary issues such as drug-abuse treatment, active labor market programs, tobacco addiction, financial regulation, malnutrition and corruption. Several chapters link cost-benefit analysis to other techniques such as cost-effectiveness and impact evaluation. The book will be valuable to scholars wanting to do further research in the field, as well as to consumers of cost-benefit analysis - those who need to know the underpinnings of what their analysts give them.
--Shanta Devarajan, The World Bank

This is a very nice and very useful set of articles on cost-benefit applications. The book will be particularly useful for students but also for professionals interested in keeping up with the state of applied work. I will use some of the articles in my class. Brent's introduction is also well done. --Richard O. Zerbe, University of Washington, Seattle
