Interest in using federal government spending to stimulate U.S. economic recovery has intensified recently in response to indicators showing significant deterioration of the economy. Policymakers at all levels of government are debating a range of options to address these problems. Some favour using traditional monetary and fiscal policies. Others, however, favour making accelerated investments in the nation's public infrastructure in order to create jobs while also meeting infrastructure needs. This book is an overview of policy issues associated with the approach of using infrastructure as a mechanism for economic stimulus. This book consists of public documents which have been located, gathered, combined, reformatted, and enhanced with a subject index, selectively edited and bound to provide easy access.
