EPA uses cost-benefit analysis as an important source of information to evaluate the impacts of alternative policy choices. Cost Analysis Cost analysis involves estimating the expenses needed to comply with new drinking water regulations. Expenditures to install and operate contaminant removal technologies Costs of water monitoring and analyzing water samples Management and oversight costs The estimated cost is also used to assess the financial impact of reducing the contaminant on the consumers of water such as an increased household water bill.

SchmalzUniversity of Michigan. This note takes a first look at those, and comes to rather interesting conclusions. Note for later that the first peer mentioned for comparison in the presentation is Monsanto.
For example, DuPont could decrease prices in the seeds market, and thus increase its market share. The lower market prices for seeds would also lead to greater output and ultimately lower product prices for consumers — for short, greater economic efficiency.
That is the first source of imperfectly aligned incentives between the passive funds and Trian. The more important insight, however, is that the common shareholders of the two firms would suffer from increased competition.
Because prices would be lower, so would be the combined revenue and profits of DuPont and Monsanto. That outcome is in strict discord with the economic interests of Vanguard, BlackRock, and State Street. That is the second — and socially important — source of disagreement between the economic interests of Trian and the mighty mutual funds.
Here is one last nugget. Predictably, the mutual funds voted against him. If not before, then now they know: If we want lower product prices, and higher output and efficiency, then taking a close look at the power and industrial organization of the asset management industry might be a good place to start.
Yet, whatever the reasons why the passive investors voted against Peltz, be it their economic incentives or other considerations, it is undisputable that their vote did prevent a campaign aimed at tougher competition.
They thus caused less competition, compared to what it otherwise would have been. Only shareholders with undiversified portfolios have an incentive to engage to that effect, while only large shareholders have the clout to do so.
