John Graham and Jonathan Wiener develop their thesis that unless risk tradeoffs are considered in reducing risks, well intentioned, costly measures may fail to deliver the expected protection of the environment, safety or health. In brief, Graham and Wiener begin by describing a framework for 'risk tradeoff analysis,' then document the significance and complexity of risk tradeoffs in a range of real-world issues, and conclude by proposing a holistic approach to reducing risk.

The heart of the book is a series of case studies presenting decision alternatives in the context of RTA.

Actuaries are in the midst of an effort to broaden their profession's scope. Risk vs. Risk is a valuable introduction to the process of "risk tradeoff analysis" (RTA), a technique that may prove particularly useful to the actuary dealing with an unfamiliar, and perhaps less quantitatively tractable, set of uncertain events. The heart of the book is a series of case studies presenting decision alternatives in the context of RTA.

We see the stories in the newspaper nearly every day: a drug hailed as a breakthrough treatment turns out to cause harmful side effects; controls implemented to reduce air pollution are shown to generate hazardous solid waste; bans on dangerous chemicals result in the introduction of even more risky substitutes. Could our efforts to protect our health and the environment actually be making things worse? In Risk versus Risk, John D. Graham, Jonathan Baert Wiener, and their colleagues at the Harvard Center for Risk Analysis marshal an impressive set of case studies which demonstrate that all too often our nation's campaign to reduce risks to our health and the environment is at war with itself.
