SUBSIDIES, CAPITAL FORMATION, AND TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE: MASS TRANSIT. VOLUME 2

This volume is one of seven case studies. The tools of microeconomic analysis are applied to assess the responsiveness of both the supplier and the user of the subsidized product or service. Particular attention is given to the effects of the subsidies on capital formation and technological change, but general efficiency effects are also considered. Because the bulk of the stimulus to technological change in the transit industry represents a secondary impact, the main focus of the study is on the ways in which the subsidies affect the demand for inputs into the provision of transit service.
