Excerpt: Although the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences sponsored this workshop for experts from outside of the National Science Foundation (NSF), colleagues from across NSF helped through their participation as observers at the meeting and by providing valuable advice throughout the organizational and implementation process. We particularly want to thank Howard Kunreuther of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania for organizing the workshop. We also appreciate the willingness of Elizabeth Anderson, Geoffrey Heal, Howard Kunreuther, and Peter Orszag to attend a pre-meeting planning session and to prepare case study materials. Finally, we recognize that the workshop would not have happened at all without its participants. These busy leaders did not merely attend, but prepared pre-meeting papers and worked diligently at the workshop to coalesce their often-brilliant individual insights into a consensus document of conclusions and recommendations. Their accomplishments should have far-reaching consequences for risk analysis and decision making in a democratic society.
