Bikenomics: How Bicycling Will Save the Economy (If We Let it)

Author(s): BLUE ELLY

Sports & Hobbies

Bikenomics provides a surprising and compelling new perspective on the way we get around and on how we spend our money, as families and as a society. Bicycle transportation is good for a lot of things: it's healthy, it's green, it's quiet, it's fun and it builds community. It also makes financial sense and the magnitude of bicycling's economic impact gets far less attention than it deserves. In Bikenomics, Elly Blue explores the scope of that impact, from personal finance to local economies to the big picture of the national budget.
