The Valuation of Social Cost - Routledge Revivals (Hardback)David W. Pearce (author)
- We can order this
First published in 1978, The Valuation of Social Cost is concerned both with the idea, and with the practical problems, of placing monetary values on `intangible', non-marketed goods, such as pollution, noise nuisance, personal injury, or the loss of home, neighbours or recreational benefit. A diverse range of contributors critically assess both the theoretical issues and the practical attempts made by economists and others to `monetise' items which cannot be bought or sold. Each section contains a comprehensive literature review and a detailed critical appraisal. Despite being written in the late 70s, this book discusses issues which retain significant importance today.
