Many roads and highways have exceeded their projected expiration date. Failure to Invest in America’s Infrastructure Imperils Economic Growth.
Investment in America’s infrastructure is critical to sustaining long term economic growth. In fact, there is no logical basis not to invest in infrastructure. Presently, we have a crumbling infrastructure. Despite a grade of D plus by the American Society of Civil Engineers, policy makers, namely conservatives, are reluctant to ramp up infrastructure investment.
Credible studies show that just $157 billion dollars additional investment per year between now and 2020 will save America $3.1 trillion dollars in lost gross domestic product. Additionally, such investment will protect 3.5 million American jobs and prevent a decline of $3100 in annual personal disposable household income.
Underinvestment in America’s infrastructure imperils all actors in the economy. Not only will transportation jobs be preserved with more infrastructure investment, but businesses will invest in areas where infrastructure is sound. In an era of rapid globalization, we can ill-afford the economic policies of austerity when it comes to infrastructure investment.

Jessica attended the University of San Diego’s lawyer’s assistant program immediately after obtaining her undergraduate degree. She worked as a legal assistant while she pursued her master’s in forensic science. After obtaining her MS. degree she continued to work in the legal field for years till she got involved in the pre-planning business.
She has been working on her PhD in forensic psychology on and off over the past several years.
Her current focus of analysis is assisting in the process of perfecting a comprehensive analysis of LIFE EXPECTANCY as it relates to ELEVATION / LONGITUDE / LATITUDE / POPULATION DENSITY and NUTRITION variables and their relationship to life span and quality of life to produce a dissertation topic that focuses on solutions to the problem of a decreasing life expectancy and its relationship to increasing income inequalities in America.
Improving educational skills training is the #1 variable involved in elevating quality of life while simultaneously raising life expectancy. (Klocko, et al., 2015). A qualitative approach, utilizing both quantitative statistics over time and qualitative population sampling, would best represent all angles of this topic (Stimpson & Walker, 2020).
