Poisoned for Penniesshows how the misuse of cost-benefit analysis is impeding efforts to clean up and protect our environment, especially in the case of toxic chemicals. According to Ackerman, conservatives in elected office, in state and federal regulatory agencies, and in businesses of every size have been able to successfully argue that environmental clean-up and protection are simply too expensive. This new book, which finds Ackerman ranging from psychological research to risk analysis to the benefi ts of aggressive pesticide regulation, and from mad cow disease to lead paint, will further his reputation as a thought leader in environmental protection. We can't afford not to listen to him.
