Infrastructure industries, ranging from transportation (e.g., rail), energy (e.g., electricity) and communications (e.g., broadband), have played prominent roles in stimulating economic growth in the United States and around the world. These roles have been and will continue to be affected by various public policies and institutions.

Governmental policies have the prospect to either advance or impede key measures of economic performance within each infrastructure industry, not only for the organizations that operate to build, supply, and maintain the respective utilities and facilities, but also for a variety of other related firms, industries, and the economy writ large.

Scholars affiliated with the center provide valuable research, scholarly output and policy-oriented economic analysis related to a variety of infrastructure industries.
