THE COST OF TRANSPORT IN QUEBEC

LE PRIX DU TRANSPORT AU QUEBEC

This report represents an attempt at making readers more aware of the "economic dimension" of transport. It is based on the modern theory of public finance which limits the role of the government in a mixed capitalist economy, to three main functions: control of the economic activity, of the redistribution of incomes and riches, and of the allocation of resources. This study applies to the last category. An analysis is made of each road, rail, air and water transport mode which is assessed with a view to obtaining the optimum allocation of transport resources.
