~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
About Richard D. Morgenstern:
Richard D. Morgenstern, former Senior Economic Counselor to the
Undersecretary for Global Affairs at the U.S. Department of
State, where he participated in negotiations for the Kyoto
Protocol, will discuss lessons learned from the past 30 years
when it comes to estimating the costs and benefits of
environmental regulations. Federal, state and local environmental
laws have achieved significant improvements in public health over
the past several decades. These regulations also have resulted in
growing scrutiny about the costs and benefits of environmental
rules. 

His lecture 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.
