It looks like Obama's plan is aimed mostly at "traditional" industries like roads and construction within the United States. What do you think about it? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3683270/ For me, it seems that this kind of neglects the global economy. I think there should be more efforts into building "communications infrastructure" and such to get the last mile to everyone else...something that has been stunted and neglected after the Dot-Com Bust. It seems every other nation (especially Asia) has been catching up (and surpassing in many areas) to the US and NA in this regard. So will "building roads within" the US itself help for the future of global competition in the world economy? Not to mention that this is stimulating an "old industry" and would give others even more avenues to surpass the US in leading fields more relevant to global trade. Furthermore, it seems to me that a move like this would set US up to be a country in "the stone-age" in the future modern world.
