Business success or failure is often determined by decisions made in establishing selling prices for products and services. . . . In this clear and readable work, the authors present a good summary of the literature on pricing policy, emphasizing the relevance of costs. They propose a system that involves analyzing indirect costs to distinguish those that may be relevant to pricing in some circumstances but not others. This analytical contribution accounting' has promise as a tool for many businesses. Students writing papers on costs and pricing policy would find this volume a useful starting point. The bibliography is good. . . . College and university collections.
Using practical examples and simple language, this book develops an accounting system that is a new and functional key to making product pricing decisions. This accounting system, which bridges the gap between full and direct costing, is called Analytical Contribution Accounting. Georges and McGee demonstrate practically as well as theoretically why it is so superior for pricing purposes. The system is based on the relativity aspects implicit in the direct cost method, and on the calculations of a set of differentiated contributions.
Cost-Benefit Analysis provides accessible, comprehensive, authoritative, and practical treatments of the protocols for assessing the relative efficiency of public policies. Its review of essential concepts from microeconomics, and its sophisticated treatment of important topics with minimal use of mathematics helps students from a variety of backgrounds build solid conceptual foundations.

Updated to cover contemporary research, this edition is considerably reorganized to aid in student and practitioner understanding, and includes eight new cases to demonstrate the actual practice of cost-benefit analysis. Widely cited, it is recognized as an authoritative source on cost-benefit analysis. Illustrations, exhibits, chapter exercises, and case studies help students master concepts and develop craft skills.

The construction industry in Ireland is enjoying a boom in activity in the late 1990s, the impact of which is to create an atmosphere of uncertainty among consultants and contractors over the ever-increasing cost of construction. Adding to the uncertainty in pricing is the recent change of the late 1990s in method of measurement introduced in Ireland by the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) and the Society of Chartered Surveyors (SCS). The new method of measurement, entitled Agreed Rules of Measurement (ARM), calls for a new format in bill of quantities style and descriptive content and is a compromise document which follows neither SMM6 nor SMM7. An opportunity now exists for the introduction of a price book specifically formulated in accordance with the new method of measurement.
