arbcombo -- Chair’s Lecture: Estimating the Costs and Benefits of Regulations: Lessons Learned Posted: 04 Mar 2014 11:19:09
We are pleased to announce the next Series topic: “Estimating the Costs and Benefits of Regulations: Lessons Learned”. http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/lectures/speakers/morgenstern/morgenstern.htm Richard D. Morgenstern, Ph.D. Resources for the Future (RFF) Friday, March 14, 2014 12:00 Noon, PDT (WEBCAST) Byron Sher Auditorium, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA Building 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California Federal, state and local environmental laws have achieved significant improvements in public health over the past several decades. The development of these regulations also resulted in growing scrutiny about the costs and benefits of environmental rules. Traditionally the costs and benefits of a regulation are estimated prior to implementation of a law or regulation (what is known as “ex ante’ analysis), but there is also an increasing push to retrospectively analyze the impact of a regulation after implementation, through what is known as “ex post” analysis. The question is: How do the two forms of analysis compare? How accurate are the anticipated ex ante analyses when measured against the actual, measured costs of the ex post analysis? Dr. Richard Morgenstern will present and discuss his research on the evaluation of environmental regulations and compare the costs and benefits of federal environmental regulations estimated both before and after implementation. Dr. Morgenstern's work highlights pitfalls that can lead to inaccurate results and proposes a way to conduct retrospective analyses in the future--to ensure that the estimation of regulatory costs is as targeted and focused as the underlying environmental regulations.
