THE SIZE OF TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRIES AND THEIR STABILITY

This paper deals with the predictability of the sizes of transportation companies and issues of stability in the industry. A conceptual approach of physics is applied to analyze effective constraints on industrial dynamics, possibly pointing to a technique for predicting the impacts of certain regulatory reform proposals. Commercial air carriers, railroads, pipelines, water carriers, motor carriers and bus lines are examined.
