Title Assigning Priority to Environmental Policy Interventions in a Heterogeneous World
Description The goal of the paper is to help policy analysts identify the conditions under which integrating cost and benefit information is crucial to effective decisionmaking, and 
the conditions under which failing to use both cost and benefit data would result in 
little, if any, loss in efficiency. These points are illustrated through a conceptual discussion 
and an empirical analysis of a conservation initiative in the United States.
