Government and corporate decision-makers deploy cost-benefit analysis (CBA) in order to make critical decisions affecting both the public and the private sector. CBA is of particular interest to policy makers, since it can be used to decide whether important initiatives—such as hosting the Olympics or building a high-speed railway—are worth undertaking from the point of view of the entire society.
Unlike economic impact analysis, CBA takes into account what society has to give up in order for the benefits of a given project to be realised. Also CBA can seek to quantify the costs and benefits for which there is no tangible market value, such as environmental implications or broader social values associated with a given project. We are uniquely able to present our findings in clear, concrete economic terms that will resonate with policymakers and executives around the world.
