My fear is that now that this is underway, any attempts to re-establish objectivity in benefit-cost analysis will be viewed as founded in political gamesmanship rather than objective economic analysis.

Environmental Economics

Anyone at EPA care to weigh in on the 'new' methods for benefit cost analysis? I have spent my career developing (hopefully) objective methods for the valuation of environmental benefits and costs.    This is particularly troubling : The Trump administration’s rollback of environmental regulations has received ample attention in the media. Unfortunately, all the coverage has done little to slow the campaign at the U.S.

On my reading list: "The Economic Impacts of Climate Change"

Environmental Economics

Abstract:  This article reviews the economic impacts of climate change and the policy implications of the results. Current estimates indicate that climate change will likely have a limited impact on the economy and human welfare in the twenty-first century. In fact, the initial impacts of climate change may well be positive. However, in the long run the negative impacts dominate the positive ones. Negative impacts will be substantially greater in poorer, hotter, and lower-lying countries.

When it comes to easily measured economic outcomes, President Trump 'has had a reasonably good year.but.'

Environmental Economics

FiveThirtyEight's assessment of President Trump's first year: The upshot? Few dramatic changes in either direction. Jobs in the manufacturing and coal mining industries ticked up, the trade deficit shrank a bit, and the number of murders in some big cities decreased. The uninsurance rate got worse — the only change in the opposite direction of Trump’s goal. The biggest movement in the direction Trump hoped to see was the increase in oil and natural gas production.
