CONCEPTUAL PROBLEMS IN EVALUATION OF TRAVEL TIME

A number of conceptual problems in the evaluation of time as currently practiced are discussed. A number of assumptions implicit in a theoretical approach to the value of time are stated explicitly, and two economic analyses of the value of time are compared. This involves, in particular, a critical discussion of the validity of the modified consumer behavior theory as it is currently being applied to this problem. A suggestion for broadening the issues involved is made stressing some properties of time that have so far not been included in the research effort.
