7 Infrastructure Assets That Can Help Rebuild America
Despite their differences (real or imaginary) about almost anything, Democrats and Republicans love infrastructure projects. These are easy wins for the leaders of Congress seeking re-election. And they usually encourage job creation, which contributes to economic growth.
With that in mind, it is ironic that the United States Congress has not passed an infrastructure bill in the past four years.
Despite (and perhaps because of) the stalemate that appears to lie in the country’s future, infrastructure seems to be at the forefront again. The economic recovery is far from over. Unfortunately, America’s roads, power grid, telecommunications systems, and the like aren’t either. This means that it would be good policy for a Biden administration to check an infrastructure bill.
Biden will be under pressure to support the $ 1.5 trillion infrastructure package that the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives passed in July. However, the package may need to be tweaked as it currently contains climate change initiatives that have kept the bill from advancing through the Senate.
However, it seems that the economy is going to need some significant juice after everything this winter brings on the virus. And if calmer minds prevail (we can always hope), there may be a major infrastructure bill to encourage job creation. And we’ve identified seven stocks to watch out for if this happens.
