As outlined so far, Skinner's transportation strategy is a welcome statement of what the federal government can and should do to improve the nation's
transportation. While Skinner's project has caused many understandable anxieties, his recent speech previewing the strategy indicates that it will be a strong reaffirmation of market principles, rather than a call for central planning. For this he should be congratulated.
