Rick Geddes on Rebuilding the Nation’s Infrastructure

Deteriorating U.S. infrastructure has important economic consequences. Join Dr. Rick Geddes, Professor in the Department of Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University and Director of the Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy, as he considers which policy steps the new Administration and Congress can take to tackle this issue. Rick will look at potential roadblocks to successful infrastructure investment, opportunities for public-private partnerships, and the toll on U.S. GDP and jobs if we ignore the problem. In the near future, CED will release Rick’s policy brief and full policy statement on infrastructure issues.
