Fatal Tradeoffs: Public and Private Responsibilities for Risk

Author

Listed:
  • Viscusi, W. Kip

    (Duke University)

Abstract

This book is the culmination and synthesis of Viscusi's distinguished work in the social regulation of risk. It covers issues relating to the value of life, empirical estimates of the value of life, the rationality of individual responses to risk, the effect of government risk regulation efforts, and the role of the courts and social insurance in dealing with risk.
