Estimates indicated that for a 1-percent increase in highway capital stock, gross state product -- the output measure -- will increase by to percent. Overall, McGuire concluded that public capital has a small but significant, positive impact on productivity. The Industry Studies Approach. Edited by Cary Krosinsky and Nick Robins, this book in drew a line under the transition that was then starting from the more negative, often financially underperforming SRI approaches to what has become the fastest-growing segment of SRI, that being more positive forms of sustainable investment strategy which have been : Cary Krosinsky.

ESTIMATION OF THE IMPACT OF RURAL ROAD INVESTMENT ON SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT To estimate the impact of road investments is a complex task, as all rural road investment benefits to rural communities cannot be measured in monetary terms.

This impact of road investments on socio-economic development and economic growth is therefore anFile Size: KB. projects would be the present value of the wages created as a result of the highway investment per the number of dollars invested.

Note that this measure of economic development impact would not overlap with or duplicate road user benefits measured in the benefit-cost analysis already undertaken by the Nebraska Department of Roads. This book provides the latest evidence on the impact of infrastructure investment on economic and social indicators.

Presenting several country studies, the book explains how infrastructure investment can increase output, taxes, trade, and firm productivity. Based on this evidence, the book proposes innovative modes of infrastructure by: 2. state highway investment on local and regional development has shown that, in diversified economies, highway invest­ ments affect to a different extent the employment level of various economic sectors (17).

For instance, the employment impact of highway investments may appear first in the man­. future highway grants leads to increases not just to highway projects receiving federal aid but also to general highway spending and to state spending more broadly.

Still, using state highway spending in addition to federal highway spending as a broader measure of government outlays, we estimate a lower bound for the peak multiplier of roughly 3. Description In this study a methodology to present an evaluation framework for computing economic impact analysis of highway improvement projects is developed.

Another objective is to study the impact of locally implemented highway improvements on the entire transportation network. Accessibility changes of improved locations are also measured to understand the impact of these individual projects.

The economic evaluation methodology described in the FHWA “Best Practices” study of was used in this assessment of the completed portions of the Appalachian Development Highway System. Economic Principles Government is often asked to make highway investments for "economic development" purposes.

The purpose of this research is to estimate the effects of highway development projects on the price of housing. Transportation development projects, highways in particular, improve a certain area’s accessibility but also increase its levels of exposure to traffic intensity and noise pollution.

These externalities are evaluated by homeowners and residents and are reflected in the price of Cited by:   One measure that impact investing is gaining more traction is the growing collection of books written about that topic.

Antle followed this up with a similar study on India 8 and came to the same conclusion.

The evaluation of transportation projects has traditionally been made by assessing changes in travel time, vehicle operating cost, and safety. The broader, long-term effects on economic development (job, income and business growth) are a concern of transportation planners and decision makers, but have often been overlooked due to the lack of a reliable impact-estimation methodology Cited by: Transportation Economic Development Impact System (TREDIS) is an economic analysis system sold by consulting firm Economic Development Research Group that is used in planning major transportation investments in the US and Canada.

The role of economic impact analysis and TREDIS in the transportation planning process is explained in guidebooks of the US Department of Transportation Developer(s): Economic Development Research Group.Highway Investment and Rural Economic Development: An Annotated Bibliography.
