  6. Cost–Benefit Analysis and Distributional Preferences

    Cost–Benefit Analysis and Distributional Preferences

    Helen Scarborough, Jeff Bennett
    Advancing the incorporation of equity preferences in policy analysis, this book demonstrates the application of choice modelling to the estimation of distributional weights suitable for inclusion in a cost–benefit analytical framework. A platform for discussion of the challenges and opportunities of this approach is presented in the form of a detailed case study designed to estimate community preferences for different intergenerational distributions. While the case study is focused on natural resource management and environmental policy, the conceptual and methodological advances illustrated by the authors are relevant and applicable to a wider array of policy deliberations.

  7. Deficits, Debt, and Democracy

    Deficits, Debt, and Democracy

    Richard E. Wagner
    This timely book reveals that the budget deficits and accumulating debts that plague modern democracies reflect a clash between two rationalities of governance: one of private property and one of common property. The clashing of these rationalities at various places in society creates forms of societal tectonics that play out through budgeting. The book demonstrates that while this clash is an inherent feature of democratic political economy, it can nonetheless be limited through embracing once again a constitution of liberty. Learn More

    Public Investments in Energy Technology

    Michael P. Gallaher, Albert N. Link, Alan C. O’Connor
    Escalating energy demand may be the most important issue facing the United States and the world today.

This book addresses the social importance of new energy technologies, illustrates policy-relevant applications of evaluation techniques and proposes new perspectives for a US energy investment strategy.

The authors also consider what sort of reforms are worth undertaking in tax policy design, tax administration and enforcement, and the assignment of sub-national taxes. Learn More
