Abstract

This chapter explores the socio-economic impacts of long distance commuting on host and source communities. It explains why companies and people choose to commute long distances to work, how and where they spend their incomes and discuss who benefits and who loses through long distance work arrangements. It also discusses the public policy implications of peripatetic workforce arrangements and reviews several government enquiries into the practice.
