Justice or Economy? A Cost Benefit Analysis of the CUTS Report on Economic Impact of Judicial Decisions

In this article, the author critiques the CUTS report on Economic Impact of Judicial Decisions through a cost-benefit analysis. The author argues that the report has a flawed methodology, its recommendations do not pass muster on weighing the costs and benefits and the separation of powers doctrine is being violated. The core contention of the author is that the report favours ease of doing business over adherence to environmental regulations and its recommendations are myopic when a balancing of costs and benefits is done.
