Description

Inland Waterway Transportation explores how tools of economic analysis can improve the efficiency of both public and private investment in inland waterway transportation. Originally published in 1969, this study investigates how waterway transportation has been affected by public operating policy, costs and charges for the use of waterways in the United States as well as the impact of relationships central to waterway policy and individual firms such as the effect of the waterway environment on a firm’s efficiency. This title will be of interest to students of Environmental Studies and professionals.
