17-080917-IM to MR Infrastructure Privatization

Big article in International Business Times today by David Sirota and Lydia O’Neal about infrastructure privatization being pushed by Mike Pence and his examples of failure when governor in his home state. “Indiana has been a national leader in this area where you use private capital to build infrastructure,” Pence told one conservative radio host just after the 2016 election, signaling his eagerness to get started, but opponents of privatization have depicted Indiana as a heartland cautionary tale of get-rich-quick scheming and secrecy that led the state to sell off valuable public assets, which were then wildly mismanaged. To them, the Indiana story reveals the ideological zealotry of a politician who is now a driving force behind an infrastructure program that could radically reshape local economies and commerce in communities across the country, and for generations to come.
