While turning that dollar over in your pocket, you could do a lot worse than to beg, steal or borrow a copy of Global Problems, Smart Solutions: Costs and Benefi ts edited by Bjørn Lomborg. For this book is precisely about the value of spending. As Lomborg explains in his introduction, it is based on the Copenhagen Consensus approach, which is to look at global issues and to ask: how could economic science help us to improve decision-making? The Copenhagen Consensus “aims to put prices and sizes on the menu, making choices more  conformed.” In 2004, the Copenhagen Consensus Center fi rst gathered research on ten key global challenges – from malnutrition to terrorism – and commissioned a panel of experts to consider what they would do to benefi t humanity and the environment if they had an additional $75 billion to spend over the next four years. This initiative was to give rise to the highly infl uential publications Global Crises, Global Solutions (2005), Latin
American Development Priorities (2009), Smart Solutions to Climate Change (2009) and Rethink HIV (2011). Global Problems, Smart Solutions: Costs and Benefi ts is the continuation of this infl uential line of thinking, and presents the work of the Copenhagen Consensus 2012.
