Yesterday the Administrative Conference of the United States, ACUS, the GW Regulatory Studies Center and the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis co-sponsored a symposium on benefit-cost analysis.
During the course of the discussion a panelist from the FAA asked: how many of you ride commercial aircraft? Virtually every hand in the room was raised.
The panelist then asked how many of you had a safety concern when you rode the aircraft?
Not a single hand was raised.
