Abstract

It is reasonable to expect IRBs to develop and apply policy as other public policy agencies do. In fact, the risk-benefit analysis now required of IRBs appears to be analogous to the cost-benefit analysis adopted by public policy analysts. But, as we shall see, the new risk-benefit criterion is far less comprehensive and valid than the traditional cost-benefit model.
