More Transportation Spending: False Promises of Prosperity and Job Creation

This paper argues that a transportation stimulus package that is advocated by many members of Congress would be costly and would not stimulate private spending, as is claimed by the proponents of the stimulus package. The author suggests that the relationship between economic activity and spending on infrastructure is very moderate, takes a long time to appear and is not worth the wait.
