LAND ALLOCATION AND TRANSPORTATION PRICING IN A MIXED ECONOMY

A SIMPLE TWO-SECTOR MODEL HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO MAKE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN TRANSPORTATION AS A PROVIDER OF ACCESS AND TRANSPORTATION AS A CONSUMER OF LAND, THEREBY OFFERING SOME INSIGHT INTO THE QUESTION OF BALANCE BETWEEN TRANSPORTATION AND OTHER LAND USE. DEMAND FOR TRANSPORTATION IS DERIVED FROM PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITIES THAT ALSO CONSUME SPACE, AND THE SUPPLY OF TRANSPORTATION DEPENDS UPON HOW MUCH SPACE IS TAKEN OUT OF THE PRIVATE PRODUCTIVE SECTOR. A TRADE-OFF OCCURS BETWEEN TRANSPORTATION COSTS AND CAPITAL COSTS, WHICH DEPENDS ON THE INTENSITY OF CAPITAL PER UNIT OF LAND. A MIXED ECONOMY IS EMPLOYED AS A RATIONALE FOR THE MODEL. THE MODEL FORMULATION, SOLUTION AND INTERPRETATION ARE PRESENTED.
