Abstract

Many alternatives can reduce the flood risk around Galveston Bay (for an overview, see page 146). But which combination of alternatives suits the society most? This is, no doubt, a political decision, with various interests each playing a role. Nevertheless, we can always ask which combination is most attractive from an economic point of view.
