Commenting on this report and the review, Liberty Scott has posted that what is needed is a full benefit-cost assessment.
What this might involve was the subject of a Round Table on Security, Risk Perception and Cost-Benefit Analysis held by the Paris-based International Transport Forum (ITF) on 11-12 December 2008 at which the following discussion papers were presented:
- Toward Risk-Based Aviation Security Policy by Robert Poole from the Reason Foundation
