What political strategy is behind the intervention fund set up for main loss making railroad lines?. - This paper offers an analysis of the political strategy and financial consequences related to the intervention fund set up, as mentioned by the Secretary for Transport, to subsidise main loss-making railroad lines. After discussing the financing of the SNCF's main line business, we show that setting up such a fund is not necessarily beneficial – on the long run – to the operator: that fund reduces efficiency incentives if it is not supported by a contract with the lawmaker, and constitutes a further step towards a potential opening up to competition.
