Optimal Congestion Tolls for Car Commuters. A Note on Current Theory

The normal theory of congestion tolls follows the conventional lines of general cost theory, including the assumption that the production period is fixed. Mr Jansson shows that the 'production period' for travel to work can be extended if congestion causes commuters to leave home earlier.
