Économie des rythmes urbains

Abstract : Economics of urban rhythms tells us that cities are characterized by a double scarcity, that of time for individuals, that of space for the community. The former, because of the increase of their income, seek to intensify their activity programs. For this they develop their mobility at the risk of causing traffic congestion. Public policies are therefore in charge of managing the scarcity of space so that individual mobility is part of a collective process of production. But this cannot be done by imposing too much constraints on travel time budgets. As it is not possible to change abruptly, at once individual choices and the collective trade-off on the uses of space, new mobility will develop only if they optimize the management of this double scarcity.
