AALS Workshop on Torts, Environment, and Disaster
I'm off to Berkeley this morning for the Association of American Law Schools Mid-Year Meeting. I'll be making two presentations at the Workshop on Torts, Environment, and Disaster, neither of which are directly related to law. One will be a somewhat hypothetical talk about how the so-called Precautionary Principle might practically be reconciled with Cost-Benefit Analysis (which I have previously blogged about here). My other talk is on the basics of discounting and some controversies over selecting a social discount rate. The brochure, containing the complete agenda, can be viewed here.
