The Transport Problem
Originally published in 1982, this book gives a concise commentary on the development and performance of car ownership prediction procedures and a wide-ranging survey of the modelling techniques associated with forecasting. The book provides a basic appreciation of the key points, whether they are mathematical or otherwise. Throughout the book there is a theme which relates the academic debate surrounding the issue to technical rather than philosophical concepts.
Christopher Foster is a former Director General of Economic Planning at the Ministry of Transport and was Professor of Urban Studies and Economics at the LSE. He was also the former head at Coopers & Lybrand of the economics and public policy division.
