Final Report of the Task Force on Railroad Productivity to The National Commission on Productivity and The Council of Economic Advisors
1973 November
Soft Cover
329 Pages
The final report of the Task Force follows. The report is concerned with the railroads primarily as transporters of freight rather than passengers. Its scope is further narrowed to a consideration of actions that might be taken by the Federal government to improve railroad productivity and performance. It does not, therefore, consider other government actions, such as swifter approval of applications for general rate increases, which might be desirable but would not directly affect productivity. Nor does the report systematically explore reforms which private management might implement themselves but in which the participation of the government is not essential. The report does not address the railroad crisis in the Northeast expressly, but rather only as the problems in the Northeast significantly intertwine with the problems facing the entire industry. While the contents of this report represent a general consensus of the members of the Task Force, each conclusion and recommendation is not necessarily endorsed by every member.
The Task Force expresses its appreciation to Miss Sally Aldrich who typed the final drafts of this report.
