    And if I recall my public relations case studies correctly, Ford Motor Co. went so far as to assign an actual dollar value to human life when it evaluated the Pinto rear-end collision scenario.

    It’s all part of a cost-utility analysis.

    Nowadays, all factories, producing plants, etc. have to do a safety analysis, and if a death is postulated from some failure, an extra safety system is put in place to stop the hazard before the consequence happens. As NoButILookLikeHim says, it adds to the cost, sometimes a lot. Some of that fast-acting safety equipment is much more expensive than normal devices.

    We all do this. Let’s get the cool car rather than the one with the 5-star safety rating. We can always sue later if someone gets killed.

    He sees a difference between putting people at risk and deliberately killing them.

    If you don’t put out the new product have you done the analysis of the number of lives not saved?

    And Lee Iacoco said “Fixing it is too expensive; we’ll pay for the deaths”.
