The American Transportation Problem By Harold Moulton Hard Cover 1933 915 Pages  EX-LIBRARY BOOK
This is primarily a railroad book, but it is than a railroad book. The essential purpose of the investigation made by the National Transportation Committee and its research staff was to throw light on the financial, economic, and governmental problems which were either created or brought to public attention by the shrinkage of railway traffic and the impairment of railway credit, which has taken place since 1929.
It was evident from the beginning, however, that the railway problem is only one phase of the larger problem of efficient transportation and can only be understood in the light of the changing technical and economic position of all transport agencies.
This volume, therefore, includes detailed studies of all important forms of inter-city and inter-regional transport, including air transport, pipe line, inland waterways and highway transport. The relation of these agencies to the railway problem is analyzed not merely as competitors of railways, but as integral parts of the national transportation plan. The purpose of the recommendations is that commodities shall be moved in the most efficient and economical way, every form of service being reserved for the agency which can perform it most effectively.
