This edition: Our Failing Infrastructure with Barry LePatner

Episode Details

Original tape date: October 24, 2017.

First aired: November 20, 2017.

Year after year we hear that America’s infrastructure is deteriorating. We’re not doing nearly enough to repair, maintain and improve our roads, bridges, water systems, schools, ports and so forth. The U.S. economy is six times larger now than it was in 1955. But we’re not investing any more in our critical infrastructure today than we did then.

How does this make sense?

Bob asks this of his guest, a man who knows as much about infrastructure and construction issues as anyone in the country. He’s Barry LePatner, founder of LePatner & Associates, a construction law firm based in Manhattan, and author of “Too Big to Fall: America’s Failing Infrastructure and the Way Forward.”
