Terror, Security, and Money

This chapter focuses on airline security, including a comparison of the risk reduction potentially supplied by such security measures as adding air marshals and hardening cockpit doors. It concludes that the air marshal service substantially fails a cost-benefit test, whereas hardened cockpit doors may well be cost-effective. The chapter also suggests that full-body scanners are not cost-effective and assesses areas where costs on airline security could be productively cut.

Keywords:   airline security, homeland security, security measures, risk reduction, air marshals, cockpit doors
