Quotation of the Day

"The economic rationale for government policy requires that it generate benefits to society that are likely greater than the costs it imposes."

From this post about the economics of climate change by Steve Sexton on the Freakonomics blog.  Of course, this quote applies far more generally than this specific instance.
