The White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs OIRA is the United States’s regulatory overseer In Valuing Life Cass R Sunstein draws on his firsthand experience as the Administrator of OIRA from 2009 to 2012 to argue that we can humanize regulation—and save lives in the process As OIRA Administrator Sunstein helped oversee regulation in a broad variety of areas including highway safety health care homeland security immigration energy environmental protection and education This background allows him to describe OIRA and how it works—and how it can work better—from an on the ground perspective Using real world examples many of them drawn from today’s headlines Sunstein makes a compelling case for improving cost benefit analysis a longtime cornerstone of regulatory decision making and for taking account of variables that are hard to quantify such as dignity and personal privacy He also shows how regulatory decisions about health safety and life itself can benefit from taking into account behavioral and psychological research including new findings about what scares us and what does not By better accounting for people’s fallibility Sunstein argues we can create regulation that is simultaneously human and likely to achieve its goals In this highly readable synthesis of insights from law policy economics and psychology Sunstein breaks down the intricacies of the regulatory system and offers a new way of thinking about regulation that incorporates human dignity– and an insistent focus on the consequences of our choices
