This subject examines the use of cost-benefit analysis in evaluating the efficiency of projects. Examples of such applications are the construction of new mines or new water infrastructure or new railway systems. The technique is also applicable to non-physical projects such as changes in the health system. In line with current realities, particular attention is paid to the role of Indigenous People and communities in projects, and external costs and benefits. Cost-benefit analysis is taught in a practical way with the intention that by the end of the subject, students will be able to conduct a cost-benefit analysis at a professional level. While the subject is available to all JCU students, it is assumed that those who choose to enrol will have a sound understanding of introductory economic principles.
