Rind, D., 2005: The decision-making machinery behind environmental policy. Georgetown Law J., 93, no. 2, 717-732.

Priceless, by Frank Ackerman and Liz Heinzerling, focuses on the question of whether there is a scientific decision-making method that will guarantee affordable protection of public health and the environment. The book discusses, and in the process exposes the flaws of, the currently dominant practice of cost-benefit analysis. Priceless suggests a more integrated approach. This Review will examine the two methodologies and measure their merits in relation to the chief environmental problem of the twenty-first century: the posible impact of global warming.
