November 17, 2020

UVA Law professor Michael Livermore and co-author and New York University law professor Richard Revesz discuss their new book “Reviving Rationality: Saving Cost-Benefit Analysis for the Sake of the Environment and Our Health,” along with panelists Jonathan Adler, Amy Sinden and Jonathan Z. Cannon. The authors argue that the Donald Trump administration has destabilized the decades-long bipartisan consensus that federal agencies must base their decisions on evidence, expertise and analysis. The panel was sponsored by PLACE, UVA Law’s Program in Law, Communities and the Environment.
