SIDELIGHTS:

Tilmann Rave is an academic. Rave was born in Munich, Germany, on January 4, 1974. Rave studied at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich and later earned a Diplôme Erasmus from Université Robert Schuman in France in 1998. Rave then earned a master of arts degree in 2000 from the University of Munich. Rave earned a Ph.D. from the University of Kassel in Germany in 2005. From 1998 to 2005, Rave worked in various universities and educational institutions. In 1998, he interned at the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment, and Energy in Germany. Then, from 1999 to 2000, he interned at Munich's Ifo Institute for Economic Research. Since 2000, Rave has served as a research fellow at the Ifo Institute. Rave also contributes regularly to periodicals and academic journals, including Applied Economics Quarterly, Journal of Environmental Assessment Policy and Management, Zeitschrift für Umweltpolitik und Umweltrecht, Ökologisches Wirtschaften, and European Environment.

Rave published his first book, Alleviating Urban Traffic Congestion, with Richard Arnott and Ronnie Schob, in 2005. The book argues that too great an emphasis has been put on toll roads as an incentive to reduce the number of vehicles on the road. Rave instead suggests a number of other alternatives to improve urban transport systems to help prevent drivers from being perpetually stuck in traffic.

A contributor to Planning found the book to be "both technical and practical." The contributor warned that less experienced readers "will have to read around the middle part of each chapter, which is a wilderness of graphs, arcane symbols, and equations," but added that at least the authors wrote the text in a way that does "stimulate optimistic thoughts about congestion during your commute." Kurt Van Dender, writing in the Journal of the American Planning Association, noted that "while the distinction between the macroscopic and the microscopic approach may not be as clear-cut as suggested in this volume, the key point is well taken: Urban transportation economics should shift its emphasis from the elaboration of a coherent but overly abstract framework to development of a portfolio of possibly disparate but policy-relevant tools."

Rave also published Umweltorientierte Subventionspolitik in Deutschland in 2005. Rave published Ökonomische Auswirkungen Umweltpolitischer Regulierungen: Eine Machbarkeitsstudie vor dem Hintergrund der Anforderungen der Richtlinie 96/61/EG über die Integrierte Vermeidung und Verminderung von Umweltverschmutzungen (IVU-Richtlinie): Studie im Auftrag des Umweltbundesamtes the following year. Assessment of Different Approaches to Implementation of the IPPC Directive and Their Impacts on Competitiveness: Some Evidence from the Steel and Glass Industry was published in 2007.
