Politic365: Government Investment Best Suited for Transportation Infrastructure

In “Government Investment Best Suited for Transportation Infrastructure,” Jessica Washington of Politic365 discusses the recently released report by PPI economists Diana Carew and Dr. Michael Mandel. Washington summarizes the report and agrees that private companies are the best option to provide high-quality and dependable broadband, while the government would be better suited to focus on public interest by increasing transportation infrastructure.

A recently released report by Diana Carew and Dr. Michael Mandel of the Progressive Policy Institute says government investment is best spent on transportation infrastructure rather than on broadband buildout. For every $1 invested in roads, bridges, and public transit systems, the economy receives a $1.5 to $2 benefit.”
