Commuting as cost shifting

Wonderful posting suggesting the idea that the time people spend driving is really part of the costs associated with shopping or working. That when employers or stores shift to models that increase the time employees or shoppers spend traveling they are actually just shifting costs. He then goes on to suggest that this explains a chunk of the difference of GDP between Australia and the US.

A nice example of using a blog as a way to engabe in “think in public“.
