Analysis of benefits and costs of EU enterprise and industry policies
This lot would mainly be used to assess the benefits and costs of EU enterprise and industry policies and initiatives. It could, among other things, provide qualitative and quantitative data where monetisation is difficult because of the absence of market prices (e.g. impacts on health and human life or on the environment). This might require the application of methods based on stated preferences (e.g. contingent valuation) or revealed preferences (e.g. hedonic pricing). According to the contingent valuation method, the value of for instance, a health impact, can be assessed by asking stakeholders about the amount of money they would accept to pay in order not to suffer a negative health impact or about the amount of money they would need to receive in order to be compensated for a negative health impact. To get valuable results, such surveys have to be conducted according to very strict conditions described in the related literature, and so have to be their statistical analysis.According to the hedonic prices method, the value of for instance, a health impact, can be assessed indirectly through a related market: for instance, the wage difference between risky and non-risky jobs gives an estimation of the value of the risk and hence of the value of the potential health impairment.
