THE INTERSTATE SYSTEM: A RETURN ON INVESTMENT ANALYSIS: ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR LAND ECONOMIC STUDIES

A METHOD IS DESCRIBED FOR CONDUCTING LAND ECONOMIC STUDIES THAT WAS RECENTLY EMPLOYED AT THE VIRGINIA HIGHWAY RESEARCH COUNCIL. THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT APPROACH TO PUBLIC EXPENDITURES EXAMINES AN INVESTMENT FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF INCOME EXPANSION, WHICH BENEFITS NOT ONLY THE USER, WHO IN THE CASE OF HIGHWAYS HAS PAID OR IS PAYING THE COST, BUT ACTUALLY GENERATES PRIVATE INVESTMENTS AND INCOME EXPANSION THAT ENABLE THE STATE TO RECOVER ITS INVESTMENT THROUGH ADDITIONAL INCOME THAT MAY BE USED FOR OTHER PURPOSES. A RETURN ON INVESTMENT ANALYSIS OF HIGHWAY EXPENDITURES OFFERS THE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATOR THE ADVANTAGE OF ASSIGNING PRIORITIES TO PROJECTS BASED ON THE BASIS OF THE RATE OF RETURN. /AUTHOR/
