The Cost of Cost Studies

Here's the presentation I gave at the NZAE meetings in Wellington. I'm tidying a few typos in the paper there delivered; it'll be up on the site soon enough.

I'm today speaking at the Australian Conference of Economists' Public Policy symposium. They there run the annual Dodgy Awards: A half dozen economists each are charged with making the case that his area of work sees the worst application of economics to policy. I'll be arguing that preventative health is the worst of the lot; I'll be drawing a fair bit on the talk I gave at the Mont Pelerinmeetings and on the material presented in Wellington at the NZAEs. The session should be a lot of fun.
