Why don't we create jobs through infrastructure improvement projects (like during the Great Depression)
I know some money is going for this type of work, but with all the recent talk about how bad our roads, dams and bridges have become, why not stimulate the economy by spending money on these types of works instead of giving companies tax breaks, etc.? Does anyone know why these projects aren’t used as much as during the Great Depression? Just curious.
