US embarks on a new kind of industrial policy

Shall we be surprised? It’s hard to invest in infrastructure in a country where every single infrastructure project drags a huge permitting tail behind itself. Thats expensive and takes a lot of time. besides, you will have activists on your tails come what may. Not enviable. Given, the US infrastructure problems pre-date this kind of activism but it has made it significantly worse. People must see what they miss out on when this happens so sturdy legal remedies can be drawn up.
