Laws that incentivize good behavior work better than those that simply prohibit, says scientist Jonas Eliasson. Through his research on traffic congestion charges, he reveals the power of incentives to achieve meaningful social change. Dr. Jonas Eliasson is Professor of Transport Systems Analysis at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and director of the Centre for Transport Studies at KTH. Prof. Eliasson directed the design of the Stockholm congestion charging system, and chaired the Expert Evaluation Committee for the Stockholm trial. He chaired the committee responsible for transport forecasts and appraisal of the National Transport Investment Plan, and is a frequent advisor to the Swedish Government in transport policy issues.
