Investing in Infrastructure

A lot of nonsense has been written and tweeted about the $1 trillion Trump/Bannon infrastructure investment plan. A few things have become clear in the first chaotic months of this administration:

1. They don’t have $1 trillion

2. We don’t know what they mean by infrastructure

3. They have no idea where the investment will come from or go

4. It’s not a plan

For the real deal on what might happen on infrastructure, and what the country really needs, our guru is Adie Tomer at the Brookings Institution.
