Mr. President: The Way to a Trump Infrastructure Build-out: Building Back Big, Bold, and Best

The way to make the American economy productive again and produce millions of productive and high paying jobs starts with building large scale new infrastructure, such as the type of water projects which can green the Great Plains and the West, building whole new cities, creating a nuclear power grid, and through the new discoveries which will come from massively funding crash programs in space exploration and in biosciences.

But, the perennial question is, Where do we get the funding to do that? President Trump ran on the promise to revive the economy through large scale infrastructure projects. This promise has been neutered by the lame brain economists of the Republican Party, particularly in the Senate, and an elite which refuses to lend funds for this purpose, preferring to get rich by presiding over America's decline. Here, we present how Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt solved this problem; provoking exactly the kind of physical economic mobilization we need now.
