Inversiones en infraestructuras de alta velocidad: esperar es rentable
[Investing in high speed rail: when waiting is socially profitable]
Public investment in high speed infrastructure is a priority of the Spanish government. High speed is a technological breakthrough in transport but, from an economic point of view, the question is whether is socially worthy to allocate public funds to this transport option. The answer requires a comparison of benefits and costs for each corridor. In this paper the analysis of the profitability of the high speed rail investment is made using the information obtained from a survey to the users of the corridor Madrid-Zaragoza-Barcelona.
