From Our Editors

This is an introduction, accessible to non-economists as well as to economists, to the practice of cost-benefit analysis. It begins from a discussion of financial appraisal. The distinguishing features of cost-benifit analysis are then introduced progressively. Practical examples are used whenever possible to aid the exposition. Economic theory is introduced only where it is immediately relevant to practice; there is no attempt to give a comprehensive survey of theoretical welfare economics.

Editorial Reviews

'With the aid of a wealth of individual examples of this book ... should better enable the public servant to make cost effective decisions.' The Financial Times
