Development of Marginal Cost-effectiveness Methodology: Status Report
Summarizes interim results of an effort to develop a methodology to analyze the relationship between the marginal cost of pollution abatement and the associated marginal removal of pollutants. Marginal cost-effectiveness is contrasted with that of cost-effectiveness analysis which involves one of two criteria: (1) Holding effectiveness constant, and determining the least cost alternative for meeting the specified effectiveness, or (2) holding total cost constant, and determining the alternative which maximizes effectiveness for the specified cost. marginal cost-effectiveness analysis is most like performing repeated applications of the first criteria, i.e., repeat the cost-effectivenes analysis for several closely-related effectiveness levels so that the "marginal" costs of the "marginal" removals can be ascertained.
