Social Cost-Benefit Analysis

The importance of every public dollar is at a premium in these trying economic times.  
Any public expenditure should bring quantifiable value to citizens.  To quantify the 
impact on the public, investments by the public sector should require critical analysis 
to determine this impact on the public.  This economic accounting is often required 
for projects to be green-lighted in the public domain. Social cost-benefit 
analysis is a method for determining if such projects are worthy of the use 
of public funds.

effects and negative effects of projects to determine the overall impact
