  I believe that Gregor Hodgson's economic evaluations of the effects of
logging in northern Palawan, Philippines, convinced the provicial
government to cancel a logging contract.  The one example of an economic
evaluation stopping a development project I know of.  The logging company
was certainly not pleased.  For references, check with Gregor.  (and kudos
to Gregor!)   -Doug Fenner
