Government agencies like the EPA frequently use benefit-cost analysis in order to evaluate proposed regulations. By contrast, financial agencies like the SEC and CFTC rarely use benefit-cost analysis, and in recent years have seen regulations struck down by the courts because of regulators’ failure to use benefit-cost analysis or flaws in their benefit-cost analyses.

Judges are workers whose behavior is shaped by the conditions and incentives of their employment.
