THE EFFECTS OF HIGHWAY INFRASTRUCTURE CAPITAL ON THE COST STRUCTURE AND PRODUCTIVITY PERFORMANCE OF CANADIAN GOODS-PRODUCING INDUSTRY

This paper examines the impact of highway infrastructure capital on the cost structure and productivity performance of Canadian goods producing firms. The size of this impact has important implications for policymakers' decisions on whether to invest in highway infrastructure. The analysis in this paper is based on shadow value and cost elasticity measures of highway capital. This analysis is then used to estimate the "rates of return" from highway infrastructure investment.
