Public-Private Partnerships to Drive Domestic Infrastructure Projects?

[W]hat I heard the President say last night is a public-private partnership idea, which we’ve already been doing. USAID put $8 billion up and attracted more than $45 billion in a public-private partnership called Power Africa… That principle can work in our infrastructure. Isn’t it interesting that we have a business guy in the White House talking about real business solutions about infrastructure? And he knows how important infrastructure is for growing the economy.
