I've been looking at this issue as a non-specialist in the field for some 25 years and have finally put my ideas on the future of transport in three blogs, which you can find at: This forum would seem to be the ideal one for this kind of discussion. The debate might also give some ideas as to how the industrialised nations, given their inability to compete with the low-wage economies, could start to kick start their home-grown manufacturing, transport and automotive sectors, at the same time generating vast employment opportunities for the young.
