Fixing America's Infrastructure

Overview:

Modern, effective infrastructure is an essential requirement for national commerce and for growing and widely shared prosperity—even as changes in technology drive changes in our infrastructure requirements. As the underlying structure of the nation’s economy, vital infrastructure is not limited to the public works that provide physical connectivity and quality of life, but extends to realms of communication and information necessary for modern living and commerce. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the US must power its recovery and long-run economic strength by fostering world-leading infrastructure. To further that goal, CED iundertakes research to guide the delivery of cutting-edge infrastructure on a sustainable basis, helping to connect businesses and workers to more opportunities, increase productivity, and advance American competitiveness.
