Abstract

Public policies exert critical influences on the structure and composition of economic activity. This paper is the first of a series planned by the author on the general subject of "constitutionalism and incrementalism" in predominantly market economies. Focusing on the progressive displacement of mass transit by the private auto in local transportation and on the concomitant conversion of mass transit to a primarily public-sector activity, the paper provides a concrete setting for the conceptual and analytical studies which will follow.
