I must re­veal that my hus­band's li­brary in­duced me to mar­ry him in a shot in my first year in Trinidad. Kwarteng and Dupont get quite excited about potential, and fantastical, new ways of getting about, and of mitigating against congestion.

Gridlock Nation looks at the timeless problems faced in transport, from traffic jams in Rome to Victorian road rage. e., one standard deviation below and above its mean value for continuous variables and between 0 and 1 for divided government). I in­ter­viewed the whores and went wad­ing in­to the Beetham, in­to hos­pices where there was no mor­phine, and stood amongst boys who were liv­ing and some dead by the gun. I am quite sure that huge sums of money have been ‘poured into’ Britain’s roads, as well as into the railways, but it is only the latter that seems to exercise Kwarteng and Dupont.The best they can do is to point out that ‘demand for using roads clearly isn’t infinite everywhere’, which is nothing more than a truism, and does not confront the reality of ever greater traffic flow on widened or new roads where demand, while not infinite, keeps up with supply. What I read was something that might have appeared in the Daily Mail - a series of glib and mostly unsupported opinions. A sub-standard road network results in higher business costs and lower productivity, and is potentially a major impediment to economic recovery. Exhibit 1 being the M25 where the advice was that 4 lanes in each direction were needed from day one. The main thesis – and one that informs the kinds of answers that Dupont and Kwarteng reach for – is that planning is bad for transport, and that, by contrast, the market is good.

Instead I got a series of baseless waffle trying to justify a fantasy transport system that would not work.While we may not be in a position to build a flying car, there is a vast range of possibilities that remain both within the reach of today’s science and are completely untried… It is at least possible that one reason the rate of progress in our transport industries is closer to that in health and education than computing is that the former remains centrally controlled, while the latter enjoys the freedom and entrepreneurialism of the market. Changes in gridlock are simulated by varying the values of each independent variable between the values in column 2 (i.

Aviation and automobiles also began as the expensive playthings of the rich, before technology improved and costs dropped enough to make them a practical option for mass transport.
