Retrospective Social Discount Rates

I am sitting in a session at JSM 2016, and will be presenting my talk tomorrow. While this is pure public economics and applicable to almost any benefit-cost analysis, this talk grew out of an analysis of flood mitigation and recovery evaluation.

It’s a speed presentation, meaning I get basically 5 minutes, then an electronic poster. It’s my first time doing this style of presentation, so I am using the same slides for both the presentation and the electronic poster.
