HIGH TECHNOLOGY TRANSPORTATION AND THE INFORMATION HIGHWAY. A GLOBAL MARKET STRATEGY FOR THE UNITED STATES

In terms of creating a sustained economy and jobs, Project California's assessment of high technology transportation is now available. The assessment places Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems and Advanced Communications and electric vehicles at the top of the list. Those three areas have the best chances of producing jobs and a highly sustained economy. Although the author could build a strong case for all forms of high technology transportation to create a globally competitive industry, for the purposes of this essay, she will focus on the investment in a ubiquitous high capacity Advanced Communications System or "Information Highway" for the purpose of moving images and information. After defining the "Information Highway," the author will discuss how it competes with Japan and major countries in the European Common Market and how it provides ancillary benefits to the U.S.
