Abstract

Junk Economics is a review of Frank Ackerman & Lisa Heinzerling's book, Priceless. Priceless argues that cost-benefit analysis has been distorted for political reasons, especially during the current Bush Administration. The review describes the authors' argument and elaborates on the political implications of the continued use of cost-benefit analysis.
