U.S. Transit, Transportation and Infrastructure: Considerations and Developments. Volume 1 $95.00
Editors: Jordan G. Clark and Ian R. Rodriguez
Book Description:
Policymakers at all levels of government are debating a wide range of options for addressing the nation's faltering economic conditions. One option that is once again receiving attention is accelerated investments in the nation's public infrastructure - that is, highways, mass transit, airports, water supply and wastewater, and other facilities - in order to create jobs while also promoting long-term economic growth. This book discusses policy issues associated with using infrastructure as a mechanism to benefit economic recovery. Discussed are the roles of infrastructure investment in economic growth generally and in contributing to bolstering a faltering economy. Key issues include the potential role of traditional and "green" infrastructure in creating jobs, timing and setting priorities. (Imprint: Nova)
