​Infrastructure spending in America, trouble in Ukraine

Every major city in America has infrastructure problems, with one out of every nine bridges in the US considered structurally deficient. That means that they need to be repaired in a serious way. Erin weighs in. Victor Matheson, professor of economics at College of the Holy Cross, tells how sports team franchises benefit from striking deals to build new stadiums and explains how the stadium funding process compares in Europe and abroad. Paul Craig Roberts, chairman of the Institute for Political Economy, says how the US and EU will deal with Ukraine’s debt situation and if Ukraine will default. And in The Big Deal, Erin and Edward Harrison continue the discussion on US infrastructure, specifically regarding transportation and travel.
