THEORY AND IMPLEMENTATION OF COST AND BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS: THE NECTP

The report presents the theory and application of transportation cost analysis methodology within a framework based on economic efficiency principles and on the application of welfare economics to decision-making in the transportation sector. The principles governing the efficient allocation of resources in transportation are set forth and adjustments required for market imperfections are discussed. Economic theory is applied to costing methods and techniques, and finally both transportation cost and productivity are brought together within a Pareto optimal framework for purposes of exploring the proper use of costs in decision-making.
