US: D+

Untitled.jpg

We have written about this previously, the state of American infrastructure¬†and the problem that is not appealing to the masses, and we can report that not a lot has changed. According to ASCE, the US got a 2017 report card for infrastructure and the outcome is pretty static … D+ (same as it has been for the past half-decade or more). Part of that story has to do with the grading system in the first place, but most (near all) has to do with the dwindling state of infrastructure in the past decade of austerity policy¬†that effectively kicks the proverbial can down the road such that the next generation inherits suboptimal infrastructure in the US.
