By Cindy Wallis-Lage, Dean Oskvig, and Martin Travers (May 1, 2012)

 

The once cutting-edge infrastructure that allowed the United States to harness its productive capacity and dominate the 20th century is lagging.

And communities must do the same to retain businesses and attract new ones.

No lasting improvement to one of these elements is possible unless it is coupled with improvements to the others.
