We continued a symposium on the future of cost-benefit analysis.

On Monday, Zachary Liscow explained how standard cost-benefit analysis exacerbates inequality and offered three strategies for bringing concerns about distribution within the CBA framework.

On Tuesday, Elizabeth Popp Berman argued that liberals needed to take a page out of the conservative playbook, and treat CBA as a means for advancing outcomes we think are good, rather than as an end in itself.

And on Thursday, Stacy Seicshnaydre continued our Bonds of Inequality symposium by considering how the Fair Housing Act might be used to disrupt inequitable urban development.
