Typical of many Yale law students of the late 1960s, I wanted to lead the way to "progressive" social goals. My friends and I had learned from Professor Guido Calabresi that reaching these goals required making difficult choices such as between preventing accidents and keeping down the cost of their prevention, or, more to the present point, between protecting the environment and keeping down the cost of its protection. We also knew who ought to make these choices for society-us.
