Editorial Reviews

Review

"A remarkable combination of case studies, data on many scales, and application of economic principles.… [this report] provides a deep understanding of the relative roles of the market, government intervention, and social institutions in determining and improving both the prevention and the response to hazardous occurrences." --Kenneth J. Arrow, Nobel Prize in Economics, 1972

"I strongly recommend this book to non-economists as well as economists, and to government officials who must cope with floods, oil spills, earthquakes, and other disasters." --Gary S. Becker, Nobel Prize in Economics, 1992

"Fascinating and right on target…. You are doing very important work." --Elinor Ostrom, Nobel Prize in Economics, 2009
