New Issue of Journal of Benefit-Cost Analysis Available

May 17, 2016 

The Spring 2016 issue of the JBCA is available now. It is a special issue on [Ir]rationality, Happiness, and Benefit-Cost Analysis, guest edited by Lisa A. Robinson (Harvard University Center for Health Decision Science and Center for Risk Analysis).

"The special issue brings together an excellent group of authors who clearly frame the problems and provide numerous new insights on welfare analysis in behavioral models. It is essential reading for anyone interested in the intersection of behavioral economics, happiness research, and analysis of social welfare."

- Raj Chetty, Professor of Economics, Stanford University
