Cost-Benefit Analysis presents an authoritative collection of the most important published articles in the field together with an extensive new introduction by the editors. Whilst focusing on the practical side, looking at applications such as education, transportation and the value of life and health, this important volume also emphasises the essential role of economic theory, with sections on the economic costs of public funds, foreign exchange and labour. The result is an influential selection based on robust and fundamental theoretical propositions - ones that are readily suitable for everyday applications.
This timely volume provides a comprehensive synthesis of the current state of the theory and application of cost-benefit analysis. It draws from a wide range of journals to include the key articles which are the benchmarks in the development of the field. It will be invaluable to academics and practitioners alike.

What Reviewers Are Saying
`Edward Elgar has recruited the two most significant names in the business of cost-benefit analysis to edit this compilation of essential papers on the subject. My teaching and research will both be easier with this volume on my shelf, as I'll always have the right papers at my fingertips on the theory of social discounting in open and closed economies, the marginal cost of public funds, the cost of foreign exchange, and applications related to the environment, education, health, and transportation.' -- Don Fullerton, University of Texas, Austin and National Bureau of Economic Research, US
