ECONOMIC THEORY AND ECONOMIC PRAGMATISM IN TRANSPORT PRICING DECISIONS

The paper initially defines the theory of pricing decisions and then discusses the nature of markets for transport services which demonstrates that the neo-classical assumptions of pricing are rarely appropriate and that the theory of second best prevails. Means for arriving at commercial prices for transport services are also advanced. /TRRL/
