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.

Helping U.S. Manufacturers: What works? - Agracel, Inc.
One of the chasms in today’s political economy relates to manufacturing. Broadly speaking, many elites believe that the one-two punch of globalization (trade) and technology (robotics) has effectively knocked out the sector. But many people disagree. Or, more precisely, they believe that with the right policies, we could support more factory jobs in more places than we do now.

PDF: Small Business Development Impact Investing White Paper - CDFA
One of the largest challenges faced by small businesses has always been and continues to be access to capital in order to operate, grow and create jobs. While the nation is recovering from the recession, the availability of capital for small businesses has generally not recovered. This is due to the sluggishness of the economic recovery and the decline in the number and activity of community banks (a major source of small business expansion capital). The FDIC estimates that 53% of small businesses get their loans from community banks, yet the number of such banks declined by 28% between 2000 and 2014.

NOAA Joins with PortMiami to Let Larger Cargo Ships Safely Enter Seaport - Department of Commerce
PORTS is a successful public-private partnership that reduces ship accidents by more than 50 percent, increases the amount of cargo ships can carry, reduces transit delays for commercial traffic, enhances recreational activities, and improves hazardous spill response. Before the addition of PortMiami, a NOAA analysis estimated as much as a $300 million annual benefit from an expanded PORTS system. Including PortMiami, there are 31 PORTS in the country, supporting 85 percent of the nation’s cargo by tonnage.

Technology Progresses When Business, Government, and Academia Work Together - HBR
By the mid-1980’s, the American semiconductor industry seemed like it was doomed. Although US firms had pioneered and dominated the technology for two decades, they were now getting pummeled by cheaper Japanese imports. Much like cars and electronics, microchips seemed destined to become another symbol of American decline.

The dire outlook had serious ramifications for both US competitiveness and national security. So in 1986, the American government created SEMATECH, a consortium of government agencies, research institutions and private industry. By the mid 1990’s, the US was once again dominating semiconductors.

The Institutes within this network are where businesses and government work together to commercialize and drive down the cost of advanced manufacturing technologies that make products and production processes better.  There are now eight Institutes, each focusing on a specific technology, each overseen by different federal agencies. The Energy Department currently spearheads:

Transit officials can find innovative ways to bring private capital and more efficiency to their transit projects—but partnerships with private developers are often not enough. Disasters like Hurricane Sandy, which struck New York City in late October 2012, created a huge need for repairs to and expansion of the region’s transit network. Unpredictable public funding makes it difficult to capture private investment while deferred maintenance can increase costs later.
