INDIANAPOLIS – The morning commute in this landlocked Midwestern city is an obstacle course of potholes, buckled pavement, and shards of fugitive cement. Like infantrymen navigating a minefield, motorists swerve and stop, and zig and zag in rush hour traffic to avoid the peril from below.

Back on Monday, Señor Trumpanzee revealed the latest of his money-grubbing scams; i.e. his plan for repairing the nation's infrastructure. It's a scam sure to be loved by fellow grifters Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. After all, it's a plan designed to maximize the...

The government is really bad at predicting the future. Bureaucrats do not face the same incentives as the most successful forecasters of wealth (who, by the way, are allowed to go under when they fail). So why do we expect the government to predict the future of our infrastructure needs?

Without the aid of clear market signals, it's very difficult and maybe impossible for governments to determine the optimal amount and nature of infrastructure spending, even with the best of intentions. Governments certainly lack an incentive to improve over time.
