Course Materials


This book, edited by Richard Morgenstern, assembles twelve original case studies of Regulatory Impact Analyses (RIAs) performed over the past decade on matters such as lead in gasoline,ozone depletion, asbestos, clean drinking water, and sewage management. The contributors, most of whom actually worked on these RIAs, provide detailed examination of why and how they were performed. The case studies critique the nature, amount, and quality of data used by the EPA in their benefit-cost and cost-effectiveness analyses as well as the use (or abuse) of the results in final decisionmaking.
