This unit provides an investment analysis of the viability of social and economic projects or programs with a view of informing and guiding decision making. Cost benefit analysis uses microeconomic theory to determine whether society will be better off or worse off in aggregate if a particular project goes ahead. Particular attention is paid to incorporating the non-monetary costs and benefits of a project.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Write a Cost Benefit Analysis report that is suitable for public policy; and
2. Explain the principles behind cost benefit analysis.
