Teaching Benefit-Cost Analysis

Tools of the Trade

Elgar Guides to Teaching

Edited by Scott Farrow, Professor of Economics, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, US

Teaching Benefit-Cost Analysis provides detail and inspiration that extends and clarifies standard textbooks. Each short, self-contained module includes guidance to additional sources while many also provide class exercises. Classes for advanced undergraduates, practitioners, or Masters students could especially apply these tools of the trade.

‘As the feasibility of using benefit-cost analysis (BCA) as a practical tool of policy analysis has increased, so too has the need for materials to aid those of us who are called upon to teach BCA. Teaching Benefit-Cost Analysis: Tools of the Trade, edited by Scott Farrow, is a distinctive and welcome addition to the collection of such materials.'
