How Mike is building a better working world
“Here in the US, we have benefited from the foresight and willingness of earlier generations to develop world-leading infrastructure. Public and private investments, many made following the Great Depression and World War II, helped to achieve remarkable growth in competitiveness, mobility, safety, quality of life and overall economic expansion.
As we renew our infrastructure here and help other countries build anew, do we simply aspire to rebuild or recreate? Should new technologies, demographic changes and better understanding of our needs, health and environment shift what we build and how we build it?
My job is to collaborate with committed and talented people in government and the private sector who are helping to realize and reimagine our critical infrastructure.”
