The Crisis At Hand: Not only is the nation reeling under the impact and mismanagement of the COVID crisis, but the economic fallout threatens to become a runaway train. Real unemployment is running at levels not seen since the Great Depression, and more trouble looms ahead.

This autumn could witness mass bankruptcies of small and medium size businesses, deepening and increasingly permanent unemployment, mass evictions, and more economic carnage. Financial markets are zooming upward while the real economy falters, so a new huge financial crisis is in the offing.

We need a powerful economic driver which will rebuild the real industrial and manufacturing economy, and the most proven answer is a massive infrastructure program.

Learn More about a proven approach for financing infrastructure development our country has previously employed at the founding of our country and most recently used during our last Great Depression in the 1930's.
