Australian project evaluation: selected readings

The basic philosophy of this book is that economic evaluation techniques should be seen as analytical support systems for program budgeting and public policy analysis. Hence, a number of papers have been included in the book on program budgeting and its application to federal and local government resource allocation. The book consists of twenty one papers and is divided into two sections. The first part of the book deals with the principles of project evaluation, and comprises eleven papers. These deal with program budgeting, the planning balance sheet, cost benefit analysis, multi attribute utility theory, environmental impact statements, the evaluation of competing income support options, and the construction of weighted social preference functions. The second part of the book is concerned with case studies, and comprises ten papers. These cover urban redevelopment, rail transport, road construction, urban public transport, airport, woodchip production, recreation, health, local government, and defence. (A)
