CG/LA Infrastructure Maps a Strategy to Stimulate the U.S. Economy
The United States is in the midst of one of its worst recessions, but CG/LA Infrastructure may have a solution. This week, it launched its Blueprint 2025 Project Stimulus Map, which is an interactive digital platform that identifies more than 550 infrastructure projects.
These projects, CG/LA notes, have the potential to revitalize the U.S. economy through strategic investments. They cover all infrastructure sectors, have an overall investment value of approximately $1 trillion, and could create approximately 2.4 million direct and indirect jobs. “Each project featured on the map is either through or nearly through the permitting process and could break ground in 2020,” the firm says.
“The bottom line is that we have to turn the corner, flip the switch and invest heavily in innovative infrastructure projects — unemployment is close to historic highs, and we need to create high-paying jobs while providing a big jolt to the economy,” CG/LA Chairman and CEO Norman F. Anderson said.
“Public funds alone cannot achieve the innovative and robust levels of investment needed to jumpstart our economy,” he continued. “We believe it is critical to change the infrastructure investment model and get the private sector — especially pension funds — to make the investment required to transform our economy.”
