CHOICE Livermore and Revesz present a collection of articles on the use of cost-benefit analysis in emerging economies and the developing world. The collection discusses the unique problems of applying this tool in countries that are often fraught with market failures and/or institutional problems. A series of case studies on natural resource use and pollution control are included to demonstrate the potential of cost-benefit analysis in this setting. Overall, this volume is
accessible to both undergraduates and graduate students. It would be a useful companion text for an advanced undergraduate or graduate course examining environmental policy in the developing world. Highly recommended. Academic collections, upper-division undergraduate and above.
