When Is a Public/Private Partnership the Right Choice? - Urban Land Magazine
Between 2016 and 2025, state and local governments are projected to spend an estimated $1.88 trillion on building and rebuilding public infrastructure. But the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) estimates that in addition to this significant amount of infrastructure spending, a $1.4 trillion gap in needed infrastructure will remain. The ASCE estimates that the aggregate economic impact of the failure to fund this gap would add up to a loss of nearly $4 trillion in gross domestic product (GDP) by 2025. Many pundits have hailed access to private capital through public/private partnerships (PPPs) as the Holy Grail with the power to unlock private sector infrastructure delivery efficiencies, which will provide the impetus for state and local governments to fill the gap.

America's Power Grids Are Not Ready For Summer Heatwaves - BDO
Los Angeles has had blackouts and soaring electricity prices. Electricity prices across the nation have jumped to as much as double for late summer. The Secretary of Energy is calling for subsidies to make otherwise noneconomic coal and nuclear power plants available to the grid. The taxpayers of New York have stepped up with a $500 million bailout of two nuclear power plants. Electricity markets are supposed to be competitive and “de-regulated” to provide “choice” and lower prices to consumers, but now we have the characteristics of monopoly markets: reduced service and higher prices.

Or, more precisely, they believe that with the right policies, we could support more factory jobs in more places than we do now.

Potholes To Be Expected -
Considering the Global Infrastructure Hub's (GI Hub) current predictions, investment is sorely needed. However, Trump's proposal might not go far enough. 

According to the Hub, the funding gap for all sectors will accumulate to $3.8 trillion, counting together each year's gap from 2016 to 2040. By far the biggest gap is in investment in roads. In this sector alone, the GI Hub estimates a lack of funding of $94.5 billion for 2018, which makes up 88.6 percent of the overall funding gap expected for this year.

Instead, more businesses who participated in our study (64%) would like to see increased funding for smart infrastructure than greater investment in AI, sensors, or vehicle-to-vehicle communications.

Why Trump Tariffs on Mexican Cars Probably Won't Stop Job Flight - Bloomberg
Infrastructure in Mexico lags behind the highway and rail network in the U.S., so it actually costs automakers $300 more per car in additional shipping expenses to produce the vehicle in Mexico and ship it to Europe, and an extra $900 to ship it to the U.S.

That means, even after paying significantly less on labor, a car company is walking away with wage savings of only $300 per car—a fraction of what it costs to build and ship in the U.S. The bulk of the savings are tied to Mexico’s trade agreements and cheaper parts.
