The Cost Benefit Revolution

Politics by numbers

Issue 77 - September I October 2018

Cass Sunstein, a law professor at Harvard and an adviser to the Obama administration, is considered one of the most prolific and most-cited lawyers in the US. In his latest book, he advocates rethinking politics: Governments should not be guided in their decisions by public opinion, intuition, or interest groups, but by the answers to two questions: what does it cost, what does it use? Sunstein does not remain on theoretical terrain in his plea for cost-benefit policy, but shows how it can be implemented in practice.
