the shadow wage rate for labour). The Guidelines, to put it in a nutshell, shows how such shadow prices may be calculated and applied in project selection.

The paper presents one of the most usual costs and benefits evaluation methods and its evolution. The method, used in Cost Benefit Analysis of important investment projects, converts the market prices in shadow prices with the purpose to reflect the full opportunity cost, including positive and negative difficult quantifiable externalities and also, to eliminate any possible market distortion.

While calculating cost-benefit analysis, shadow prices should also be used because market prices in the economy do not reflect the true social benefits and social costs.

Projects started without making scientific estimates of the costs to be incurred over the lifetime of the projects and also of the annual returns that are likely to accrue from. 2 Shadow Prices We saw that Lagrange multipliers can be interpreted as the change in the objective function by relaxing the constraint by one unit, assuming that unit is very small.

In economics that change can be seen as a value or "shadow price" on that constraint, namely on c. With shadow prices it is possible to put a price on any constraint.

The shadow price of a good measures the net impact on social welfare of a unit increase in the supply of that good by the public sector.

In its most common usage, a shadow price is an "artificial" price assigned to a non-priced asset or accounting entry.

Advantages of Shadow Pricing. Shadow pricing is useful for incremental decisions, when management needs to know the benefit associated with the cost of extending the usage of a resource. Disadvantages of Shadow Pricing.

the shadow prices correspond to the marginal utility of money. (One could argue that this is the reciprocal of the marginal cost of producing more utility.)
