Pro’s: Creates rather than destroys. Employs workers displaced by changes in technology and globalization. Builds foundation for future economic development.

Con’s: Boring. No politician will ever make the news advocating repair of highways, railroads, bridges, schools, drinking water, electric power systems, health facilities etc.
