The fundamental law of road congestion evidence from US cities by Gilles Duranton( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We investigate the relationship between interstate highways and highway vehicle kilometers traveled (VKT) in US cities. We find that VKT increases proportionately to highways and identify three important sources for this extra VKT: an increase in driving by current residents; an increase in transportation intensive production activity; and an inflow of new residents. The provision of public transportation has no impact on VKT. We also estimate the aggregate city level demand for VKT and find it to be very elastic. We conclude that an increased provision of roads or public transit is unlikely to relieve congestion
Sand in the gears : evaluating the effects of Toronto's Land Transfer Tax by Benjamin Dachis( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Toronto Land Transfer Tax (LTT), implemented nearly a year ago, has had significant negative effects on the housing market, reducing sales and lowering average house prices."--Cover
Decomposing the growth in residential land in the United States by Henry G Overman( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper decomposes the growth in land occupied by residences in the United States to give the relative contributions of changing demographics versus increases in the land area used by individual households. Between 1976 and 1992 the amount of residential land in the United States grew 47.5% while population only grew 17.8%. At first glance, this suggests an important role for per-household increases. However, the calculations in this paper show that only 24.3% of the growth in residential land area can be attributed to State level changes in land per household. 37.5% is due to overall population growth, 5.9% to the shift of population towards States with larger houses, 22.7% to an increase in the number of households over this period, and the remaining 9.5% to interactions between these changes. There are large differences across states and metropolitan areas in the relative importance of these components
Roads and trade : evidence from the US by Gilles Duranton( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We estimate the effect of interstate highways on the level and composition of trade for us cities. Highways within cities have a large effect on the weight of city exports with an elasticity of approximately 0.5. We find little effect of highways on the total value of exports. Consistent with this, we find that cities with more highways specialize in sectors producing heavy goods

Transportation costs and the spatial organization of economic activity by Stephen Redding( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper surveys the theoretical and empirical literature on the relationship between the spatial distribution of economic activity and transportation costs. We develop a multi-region model of economic geography that we use to understand the general equilibrium implications of transportation infrastructure improvements within and between locations for wages, population, trade and industry composition. Guided by the predictions of this model, we review the empirical literature on the effects of transportation infrastructure improvements on economic development, paying particular attention to the use of exogenous sources of variation in the construction of transportation infrastructure. We examine evidence from different spatial scales, between and within cities. We outline a variety of areas for further research, including distinguishing reallocation from growth and dynamics
Political economy of common property regulation by Matthew A Turner( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fat city : questioning the relationship between urban sprawl and obesity( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study the relationship between urban sprawl and obesity. Using data that tracks individuals over time, we find no evidence that urban sprawl causes obesity. We show that previous findings of a positive relationship most likely reflect a failure to properly control for the fact the individuals who are more likely to be obese choose to live in more sprawling neighborhoods. Our results indicate that current interest in changing the built environment to counter the rise in obesity is misguided
