Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine the social cost of noise from the perspective of Singapore. On a broader issue, the paper also seeks to examine if the legislature and the courts have, in trying to determine the optimum noise-activity level, made efficient choices. That is, whether the noise-level permitted strikes a correct balance between the necessity of noise-making activities and the desire for quietude. The economics of noise damages, and its inherent difficulties in quantification and valuation are also surveyed. © 1992 Oxford University Press.
