To Jane from Basingstoke

Jane from Basingstoke asks

Imagine two otherwise equal countries. One uses tax to fund the road network. The other has slightly lower taxes but all the roads are privately owned and they all have tolls. With toll booths, for which drivers have to slow down and may have to queue.

 Which type of road network do you think is more conducive for most of the economy for generating wealth?

My answer —

  1. Why were there two really good roads to Oxford, before any to Southampton, Dover or Lowestoft or any of the ports?
  2. All-electronic tolling
