Cost-benefit analysis has historically been a domestic analysis that considers only the costs and benefits that accrue within the local country. However, as the world economy becomes more interconnected, the effects of decisions made by national actors are increasingly international in scope. For cost-benefit analysis to transcend its domestic origins, it must account for all effects, both domestic and international. While some recent examples provide hope that global cost-benefit analysis will prevail, most countries that use cost-benefit analysis continue to consider only domestic effects. International regulatory cooperation, spurred by an interest in facilitating free trade, has the potential to promote and shape a different, expanded version of cost-benefit analysis.
