In this shovel ready edition of AEI’s podcast, Banter, we sit down with author Adam J. White to discuss the history of infrastructure improvement in these United States. Adam brings an acutely historical perspective to a perennial American problem – what is the proper role of federal government when it comes to funding, regulating, and planning infrastructure in the United States. What’s more, many of the exact same questions that consume our politics today were present at the very beginning of the nation. After the history tour, we get down in the mud when it comes to current questions on present projects. Enjoy!

In the latest episode of Banter, AEI Resident Scholar Ken Green sits down with Stu and Andrew to discuss the failure of electric vehicles, particularly the Chevy Volt. Its tendency to explode isn’t the only problem after all. We discuss the reasons it’s failed, why electric cars may never be a functional alternative to gas engines, and the current administration’s problematic energy policies. Ken also tells us why he thinks the Keystone XL Pipeline will eventually happen and why the new Kindle Fire tablet is his new favorite toy.
