Investment in Mass Transportation is the answer to Current US Economic woes!

An investment in mass transportation is the answer! It will be a huge infrastructure investment providing 100,000's of new jobs including hiring 1,000's of highly paid engineers and scientist's.

It will provide employment opportunities throughout US including all the States, save US millions of barrels of imported oil, due to reducing demand for gasoline as a result of less cars on the road! This in turn will create a decrease in the substantial trade deficits. Hence resulting in a reversal of a dollar decline.

This will create an increased confidence in Foreign Direct Investments in the USA and hence gradually boost the US economy.

The increased economic activity will provide an impetus for substantial cut in the tax rates and even a reduction in the dreaded AMT tax!

You have a point, Disa! But, where is the funding going to come from? Increased taxation or borrowing more? Either of the two alternatives is not an attractive proposition, in my opinion.

Better late than never! Its about time that US invested in mass transit system! Its not only going to save money on gas and imported oil but it is also eco-friendly and will result in less cars on the highway, thus requiring less maintenance on roads and bridges etc.

Also, Reader's Digest pointed out that less cars on the roads means less accidents on the roads, less car insurance rates as well!
