I've got some bad pot holes on the way from my house to the main road. I take a detour every time I drive to or from home to anywhere. It's annoying, not horrible, just annoying. But no one can brag to me how they fixed it unless it's fixed. It's not about statistics or bombast; it's about...

Today Pelosi and Schumer are heading over to the White House-- this time at their own request-- to talk with Trumpanzee about infrastructure. This has McConnell and McCarthy fuming, primarily because Trump's own views on this are far more in synch...

If China builds it, will they still come?

If China builds it, they will likely come, but with conditions … it, being the Silk Road economic initiative, and they, being countries of the European heartland.

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.
