You can write questions here
Why the price of airlines seems to decrease now given the covid? It looks this is neither a profit maximizing nor a social optimal strategy.
Why a simple vickrey auction second price scheme does not work over time to set the prices?
Is it reasonable to assume myopic buyers? For Leisure passengers, they can wait for a better opportunity
is this pricing rule not the same as the bid price?
Good question Benny! I also Wonder.
I guess the spell is a function of time. 3 weeks out the spell can be 2-3 days long, but closer to departure maybe 8-16 hours.
What is the ratio road work /maintenance cost / total construction costs for freeways in the US?
Are you able to check whether the hours of lane closure include delayed work due to inefficiency of firms? Firms might also get bancrupt during the roadwork (as we experience this in other countries), this again might indue more hours of lane closure. If your variable includes these effects than you might have a bias in your estimates.
How do the traffic detectors measure vehicle-hours, which are how you calculate speed?
Is it possible that the reason for roadworks is also to improve safety? Could you also measure the impacts of roadworks on traffic accidents?
Should traffic at downstream also be analyzed? What is the effect on junctions further down the road? perhaps, in the long run, we return to point 0 at the road work point but to more congestion traffic further ahead.
Why does the opportunity cost (VOT?) decrease when the income over 5000 Euro?
What's your defination of "occupancy rate"?
Occupancy rate is the percentage of time (one hour) that the traffic sensor detected a car over it
It xould be interesting to compute the level of the toll that would correspond to the effect of the Driving restriction
Would you conclude from these results that current road-related charges in Paris are too high?
So driving restriction policy sometimes is not a bad policy when compares with the congestion charge?
