    On Trump and Infrastructure in NYC/Tri-state area

    There are a lot of problems with the subways and the roads here in the tri-state area. Is Trump doing enough about infrastructure here? He has never once mentioned it as President.
    Mr. Swampy is betraying the Country to get da libs.

    Trump and the GOP should have started with infrastructure and the Dems would have participated and been on board. That opportunity has been wasted .

    Now its just a hollow talking point for Trump that is going nowhere.

    When does he talk about infrastructure? I just hear him talking about the wall. That in my book does not equal infrastructure!

    No, you and the rest of the TDS gang would have found something to hate out of it and then tried to spin it into a reason to have the President impeached.

    Infrastructure is not a public good in economic terms. The government should not be involved financially but should only make sure the property rights are structured so that the private sector finds the optimum.

    Infrastructure projects could be so structured as to flourish as the economy slides into recession. Right now we do not really need the extra growth above maintenance.

    Re: On Trump and Infrastructure in NYC/Tri-state area

    Trump originally talked about infrastructure spending and then talked about public-private "partnerships" which experts concluded was just a way to enrich private interests by granting them public property. A couple of weeks ago DT declared "infrastructure week," but nothing ever came of it.

    The country does need infrastructure work and now, when interest rates are low, is the best time to finance it.
