New foundations of cost-benefit analysis by Matthew D Adler( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book, the authors reconceptualize cost-benefit analysis, arguing that its objective should be overall well-being rather than economic efficiency. They show why the link between preferences and well-being is more complicated than economists have thought. This book not only places cost-benefit analysis on a firmer theoretical foundation, but also has many practical implications for how government agencies should undertake cost-benefit studies."--BOOK JACKET

Happiness research and cost-benefit analysis by Matthew D Adler( )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A growing body of research on happiness or subjective well-being (SWB) shows, among other things, that people adapt to many injuries more rapidly than is commonly thought, fail to predict the degree of adaptation and hence overestimate the impact of those injuries on their SWB, and, similarly, enjoy small or moderate rather than significant changes in SWB in response to significant changes in income. Some researchers believe that these findings pose a challenge to cost-benefit analysis, and argue that project evaluation decision-procedures based on economic premises should be replaced with procedures that directly maximize subjective well-being. This view turns out to be wrong or, at best, premature. Cost-benefit analysis remains a viable decision-procedure. However, some of the findings in the happiness literature can be used to generate valuations for cost-benefit analysis where current approaches have proven inadequate

Introducing a "different lives" approach to the valuation of health and well-being by Matthew D Adler( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We introduce a new "different lives" survey format, which asks respondents to rank hypothetical lives described in terms of longevity, health happiness, income, and other elements of the quality of life. In this short paper, we show that the format is of policy relevance whether a mental state, preference satisfaction or extra-welfarist account of well-being is adopted and discuss some of the advantages the format has over standard formats, such as contingent valuation surveys and QALY-type methods. An exploratory survey indicates that the format is feasible and that health and happiness might be more important than income and life expectancy
