The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation is funding a national policy forum hosted by the University of Washington's Benefit-Cost Analysis Center. The conference seeks to:

  • Examine the role of benefit-cost analysis in social policy-making
  • Highlight the new opportunities presented by recent uses of benefit-cost analysis in social arena

The conference hosts aim to develop strategies for making Benefit-Cost Analysis more practical, consistent, and implementable, within the social policy fields. To that end, they have invited leading scholars, practitioners, lawyers, and policy-makers to share ideas about the implementation of benefit-cost analysis techniques and procedures.
