TRANSPORTATION POLICY OPTIONS: THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF REGULATORY REFORM
This Proceedings of a conference on the Economic Regulation of Surface Transportation, which was sponsored by the Public Interest Economics Foundation, is divided in five parts: An Evaluation of Transportation Regulation; The Hows and Whys of Regulatory Reform; Alternatives to Current Transportation Policies; Transportation Reform Policies; and Epilogue. The National Conference on Surface Freight Transportation, the event upon which this book is based, was intended to analyze the regulation of domestic surface freight transportation. Although much has been written, the interest groups and decision makers most active in resolving the present deregulation controversy were essentially unfamiliar with earlier work. The Conference sought to place politically "five" policy options in the context of the substantial body of disinterested analysis.
