This study offers insights into factors of influence on the implementation of flood damage mitigation measures by more than 1,000 homeowners who live in flood-prone areas in New York City. Our theoretical basis for explaining flood preparedness decisions is protection motivation theory, which we extend using a variety of other variables that can have an important influence on individual decision making under risk, such as risk attitudes, time preferences, social norms, trust, and local flood ris...

When Congress passed the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, it directed the Department of Energy to locate, study, license, and develop a deep underground repository for high-level nuclear wastes. As the authors of this study show, by 1987 the program was in shambles, beset by opposition from every state that had a potential storage site. Congress passed amendments to the original legislation that designated Yucca Mountain, Nevada, as the only site for study and development.The authors trace the ...

Abstract This paper presents a set of laboratory experiments wherein participants are exposed to simulated terrorist attacks that allow us to examine the effect of emotions on decision making. The first objective is to attempt to understand how individuals in this environment allocate resources between private insurance and public good expenditures aimed at reducing the likelihood of these attacks. The second is to develop a methodology to test proposals to deal with the public response to terro...
