Infrastructure Spending: Where Do We Go From Here?

Abstract

Examines the four arguments for more public investments in infrastructure spending: shortsighted government policies allowed infrastructure spending to fall sharply and the nation's roads and bridges to deteriorate; lower infrastructure spending in the past was a key reason the economy performed so poorly during the last two decades; additional spending in the future will allow the United States to grow much faster and to become more competitive in the international markets; and infrastructure spending should be included as a key part of short term economic policy.
