Infrastructure Week November 20, 2020 by Doug Masson 2 Comments I had a post from 12 years ago where I commented: I would agree that infrastructure seems to be a great place to direct the spending. My theory is that we either spend the money stabilizing things now or spend it later fighting a war if things stay bad for too long. Probably the stabilization effort has to be world wide. If people are starving and some power hungry lunatic comes along on a white horse telling them that their problems are because of those guys over there; the starving folks will happily follow the lunatic to go fight those guys over there. Turns out that “those guys over there” were liberals rather than foreigners and, rather than starving, it was more a combination of racism, economic uncertainty, and eroding social status. Still and all, infrastructure would have been a good place to spend money.
