Commuting and relocation of jobs and residences by Jos van Ommeren( Book )

23 editions published between 1996 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Van Ommeren presents an analysis of commuting behaviour from an integrated labour and housing market perspective. He proposes and analyses a theoretical search model (including job and residential relocation and commuting behaviour) with a comparison between single-wage and two-earner households. The book also includes several empirical chapters exploring the relationship between commuting and relocation behaviour."--
The Environmental and Welfare Implications of Parking Policies by Antonio Russo( )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parking policies have significant environmental and economic implications, which have often been left unconsidered. This paper reviews the relevant literature to provide a deeper understanding of the main environmental and economic consequences of common parking policies, and suggest policy options to protect the environment and increase social welfare
Labour supply and commuting: implications for optimal road taxes by Eva Gutierrez-i-Puigarnau( )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new paradigm for transport economists has been established: revenues of a welfare-maximising road tax should be employed to reduce the level of a distortionary income tax. An essential assumption to reach this conclusion is that the number of workdays is optimally chosen, whereas daily workhours are fixed, implying that given a road tax, workers may only reduce their commuting costs by reducing total labour supply. However, a labour supply model which also allows for optimally chosen daily hours implies that commuting costs increase daily hours, whereas the effect on total labour supply is ambiguous. This paper addresses this issue empirically by analysing the relationship between labour supply patterns and commuting distance using the socio-economic panel data for Germany between 1997 and 2007. Endogeneity of commuting distance is accounted for by using employer-induced changes in commuting distance. In line with the theoretical model developed, we find that commuting distance has a positive effect on daily hours. Our analysis does not find a negative effect of commuting distance on total labour supply, suggesting that a reduction in the income tax, as advocated in the literature, may not be necessary

Firm Recruitment Behaviour Sequential or Non-Sequential Search? by Jos van Ommeren( )

2 editions published in 2009 in Undetermined and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the extensive job search literature, studies assume either sequential or non-sequential search. Which assumption is more reasonable? This paper introduces a novel method to test the hypothesis that firms search sequentially based on the relationship between the number of (rejected) job applicants and the number of employees hired. We use data compiled from filled vacancies for the Netherlands. Different types of search methods are distinguished. Our results imply that when firms use advertising, private or public employment agencies, which together cover about 45 percent of filled vacancies, sequential search is rejected. For about 55 percent of filled vacancies however, sequential search cannot be rejected. In line with theoretical considerations, when firms use search methods that rely on social networks, sequential search cannot be rejected

Shopping externalities and retail concentration : evidence from Dutch shopping streets by Hans Koster( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do shops cluster in shopping streets? According to theory, retail firms benefit from shopping externalities. We identify these externalities for the main shopping streets in the Netherlands by estimating the effect of footfall -- the number of pedestrians that pass by -- on store owner's rental income, which is a composite of the effects of footfall on shop rent and on vacancy rates. We address endogeneity issues by exploiting spatial variation between intersecting streets. Our estimates imply an elasticity of rental income with respect to footfall of 0.25. We find that a shop's marginal benefit of a passing pedestrian is € 0.005. It follows that subsidies to retail firms that increase with the levels of footfall generated by these shops are welfare improving. The optimal subsidy to store owners is, on average, 10 percent of the rent, but is higher for retail firms that generate high levels of footfall. Although explicit subsidies are controversial and difficult to implement, our results seem to justify current policy practices which cluster shops by pedestrianisation of shopping streets or by providing subsidised parking for shoppers

The commuting distribution by Jos van Ommeren( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we analyse the commuting distribution from a job search perspective.We have examined under which conditions the commuting distribution is unimodal which isone of the stylised facts of commuting. It appears that a necessary condition is that space istwo-dimensional. Furthermore, one of the following ingredients is sufficient: on-the-jobmobility, spatially-differentiated search or heterogeneity ofjobs. Residential mobility does notappear to explain the shape of the commuting density function as we observe it
The university workers' willingness to pay for commuting by Giovanni Russo( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using a dynamic approach, employing data on job mobility, we demonstrate that university workers' marginal willingness to pay for reducing commuting distance is about euro 0.25 per kilometre travelled. This corresponds to a marginal willingness to pay for reducing commuting time of about 75% of the net average hourly wage. For females, the willingness to pay is substantially higher than for males. It is also substantially higher for workers that work few hours per day, as predicted by theory
Congestion and residential moving behaviour by Morten Marott Larsen( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we study how congestion and residential movingbehaviour are interrelated using a two-region job search model. Workerschoose optimally between interregional commuting and residential movingto live closer to the place of work. This choice affects the external costs ofcommuting due to congestion. The welfare maximizing road tax is derived.We demonstrate that road pricing may not only reduce congestion but alsoincrease total residential moving costs in the economy. One of the mainconsequences is that the road tax does not necessarily increase welfare
Does land use planning shape regional economies? : a simultaneous analysis of housing supply, internal migration and local employment growth in the Netherlands by Wouter Vermeulen( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why has job growth over the past decades been weaker in the Dutch Randstad area than in surrounding regions? In a simultaneous equations analysis, we find that employment adjusts to the regional supply of labour. Net internal migration is predominantly determined by regional housing supply and not by employment growth. Growth of the regional housing stock responds only moderately to changes in the number of people and jobs. This lack of responsiveness to demand conditions is plausibly related to restrictions on residential development, implying that the regional distribution of economic activity in the Netherlands reflects land use planning decisions
Welfare effects of distortionary company car taxation by Eva Gutiérrez Puigarnau( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Europe, for many employees, the employer-provided car is the single most important fringe benefit. Company cars are provided by employers as fringe benefits to their employees at a much lower (implicit) price than employees pay in the car market, mainly because of favourable taxation of company cars. We analyse the welfare effects of favourable taxation of company cars for the Netherlands by estimating to what extent the household's demand for car changes when employees receive a company car. We find that favourable taxation of company cars generates a substantial welfare loss of about 900 euro per year per company car. This loss is largely due to a shift towards more expensive cars (about 700 euro per year), whereas the welfare loss due to increased car travel turns out to be smaller (about 200 euro per year). For the whole of Europe, the deadweight loss is estimated to be about 20 billion per year
Hospitals, employees and parking by Jos van Ommeren( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study the employees' demand for hospital parking. We estimate the effect of the employees' parking price on demand using a difference-in-differences methodology. The deadweight loss generated by non-optimal pricing of parking is at least 9% of the hospitals' parking resource costs
