Cost benefit analysis (CBA) lies at the heart of policy appraisal in Government and increasingly for the voluntary sector too. For CBA to be useful in informing resource allocation decisions, we need to accurately measure all the causal impacts of the policy and to attach a monetary value to them.
The findings from behavioural economics have important implications for how we appraise policies and for how we carry out and interpret CBA. This one day course takes the latest developments from behavioural economics and applies them to how we measure and value the impacts of interventions, policies and programmes.
