Cost-benefit scholarship earns recognition

A paper by professor David Weimer and co-author Aidan Vining was one of two finalists for the 2010 Kenneth J. Arrow Prize for Senior Economists.

Berkeley Electronic Press (bepress) awards this prize each year for the very best work published in its economics journals. The Arrow Prize is the highest honor bepress bestows. Their paper, "An Assessment of Important Issues Concerning the Application of Benefit-Cost Analysis to Social Policy," was published in 2010 in the Journal of Benefit–Cost Analysis.
