The Economic impacts and interdependecies of Austrian rail infrastructure projects

Similar to earlier research, we analyse the economic ramifications of the construction of Austrian rail infrastructure projects (or, more concrete, about 40 projects of ÖBB). In contrast to this earlier research, which concentrate on the regional linkages at the level of the 9 Austrian Länder, the focus is now on the international interdependencies, utilising ADAGIO, an econometric input-output model spanning 40 countries (EU 27 plus 13 countries plus a "rest-of-the-world"). The results are value added and employment (by economic sector and country) which are connected (both directly and indirectly) to the construction of the infrastructure projects.
