This course provides an introductory overview for economists of current issues in cost-benefit analysis (CBA). The course begins by revisiting the context and foundations of CBA before moving to topics of interest to practitioners, including non-market valuation, discounting, distributional analysis and summary measures. Attendees will benefit from insights from the literature accompanied by case studies to illustrate key concepts.
The course will be led by Catherine Connolly with Ken Warwick joining the second half of the course for a focused session on Regulatory Impact Assessment. Drawing on their experience, Catherine and Ken will also provide insights into how CBA plays into decision making in the UK government. The course will be delivered fully online via Zoom with interactive exercises throughout.
