Economics at your fingertips  

Competition in the Railway Industry

Edited by José A. Gómez-Ibáñez and Ginés de Rus ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: Numerous countries have attempted to improve the performance of their railways by introducing more competition, but there is fierce debate and no consensus on how this is best achieved. This book reveals how railways were an obvious target for reform because they were often losing traffic and money, and because the government was typically deeply involved as either owner or regulator.
