Risk versus risk : tradeoffs in protecting health and the environment by John D Graham( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We see the stories in the newspaper nearly every day: a drug hailed as a breakthrough treatment turns out to cause harmful side effects; controls implemented to reduce air pollution are shown to generate hazardous solid waste; bans on dangerous chemicals result in the introduction of even more risky substitutes. Could our efforts to protect our health and the environment actually be making things worse? This suspicion has long troubled both advocates and critics of risk-reduction efforts, but the problem has never received focused scrutiny. In Risk vs. Risk, John D. Graham, Jonathan Baert Wiener, and their colleagues at the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis marshal an impressive set of case studies which demonstrate that all too often our nation's campaign to reduce risks to our health and the environment is at war with itself, steadily creating new risks. At the heart of this volume is a set of nine case studies illustrating the complexities of risk tradeoffs, ranging from personal medical choices to control of toxic substances to prevention of global crises. In each case, authors with specific expertise in the field dissect the multidimensional risk consequences of choices facing decision makers. Some of these cases reveal utter folly in risk-reduction efforts; others show decision makers recognizing and dealing with risk tradeoffs

The reality of precaution : comparing risk regulation in the United States and Europe by Jonathan Baert Wiener( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'Precautionary Principle' has sparked the central controversy over European and U.S. risk regulation. The Reality of Precaution is the most comprehensive study to go beyond precaution as an abstract principle and test its reality in practice. This groundbreaking resource combines detailed case studies of a wide array of risks to health, safety, environment and security; a broad quantitative analysis; and cross-cutting chapters on politics, law, and perceptions. The authors rebut the rhetoric of conflicting European and American approaches to risk, and show that the reality has been the sel

Labor Markets in Imbalance: Review of Qualitative Evidence by James L Medoff( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recent statistical investigations indicate that labor market imbalance has increased during the past decade and has had important deleterious effects on the nation's inflation and productivity growth records. A growing difficulty in filling skilled jobs at a given unemployment rate is reflected. Business community analysts attribute the growing imbalance to changes in technologies and geographic dispersion of jobs and to changes in education and training of the workers that are out of step with the economy's needs. The business community clearly recognizes the magnitude of imbalance. Employers' responses to this problem have caused significant increases in wage growth and significant declines in productivity growth. One response for the imbalance is the attempt to get skilled workers from competitors. Bidding wars that raise wages and prices often result. Alternatively, firms accept a poorer fit between workers and jobs than has been customary, which serves to lower productivity. (Ylb)

Precaution against terrorism by Jessica Stern( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Stunned by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the Bush administration adopted a new National Security Strategy in September 2002. The UK government took a similar stance. This new strategy calls for anticipatory attacks against potential enemies with uncertain capacities and intentions, even before their threat is imminent. Rather than wait for evidence of weapons of mass destruction, it shifts the burden of proof, obliging "rogue" states to show that they do not harbor weapons of mass destruction or terrorist cells, or else face the possibility of attack. This new strategy amounts to the adoption of the Precautionary Principle against the risk of terrorism. We offer two main conclusions about precaution against terrorism. First, any action taken to reduce a target risk always poses the introduction of countervailing risks. Moreover, a precautionary approach to terrorism is likely to entail larger, more expensive interventions, so the expected opportunity costs are likely to be higher. While considering worst-case scenarios is important for the development of sound policy, taking action based only on worst-case thinking introduces unforeseen dangers and costs. We argue that a better approach to managing risk involves an assessment of the full portfolio of risks -- those reduced by the proposed intervention, as well as those increased. We argue that decision makers developing counterterrorism measures need mechanisms to ensure that sensible risk analysis precedes precautionary actions. Such a mechanism currently exists to review and improve or reject proposed precautionary measures against health and environmental risks, but not, so far, for counterterrorism and national security policy. We urge the creation of such a review mechanism
