General equilibrium analysis of the benefits of large transportation improvements
This paper examines three benefit measures of a large transportation improvement in a general equilibrium framework. Three issues are analyzed. The first is whether the measures can be reduced to the area to the left of a suitably defined transportation demand curve. Second, the measures are expressed as functions of price and income elasticities which can be estimated empirically. Third, the general and partial measures are compared.
