Worth Less Human Beings

The AP's Seth Borenstein reports that the EPA has de-valued the worth of a human life by nearly $1 million over the last five years, effectively lowering the cost benefit of environmental regulations.

Perhaps the EPA just means humans who don't look like the folks doing the valuation analysis. Or maybe someone at the EPA merely added a minus sign when they were adjusting for inflation. It would seem more logical that this administration would have figured that DHS immigration policing is reducing the number of non-whites entering with their knowledge, which to this White House would, on average, increase human worth. But it would be crass to think that.
