Author(s)Radopoulou, Stefania; Melibaeva, Sevara; Huang, Teng; Sussman, Joseph M.
With HSR continuing to the target of investments around the world, with even the United States elevating the place of HSR on the public agenda, we thought this compendium of summaries of references on HSR and related topics would be of value. We begin with references on transportation investment and economic development in general. Then we consider the case of HSR and economic development on the local and urban as well as the national regional levels, Some references on economic geography and disparities among regions are included. We conclude with references for demand forecasting and some general references in the HSR field.
