Thomas L. Friedman asks and answers his own question - unintentionally. He asks, "What has become of our infrastructure, which is so crucial to productivity?" He answers, "I'd like to see fewer government dollars shoveled out and more creative tax incentives to stimulate the private sector to catalyze new industries and new markets." When was the last time you saw tax incentives produce infrastructure? Right: never. Friedman articulates the problem quite well, but the advances the tired old solutions that have been failing for the last decade and more.
