The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), signed into law by President Biden on November 15, 2021, promises an eye-popping sum of $1.2 trillion in investments to improve America’s ageing infrastructure. It will have far-reaching benefits especially when the economy is on the brink of a recession and the country is staring at a climate crisis.
The questions that arise, regarding how the trillion plus dollars will be utilized, are many. What are the infrastructure sectors that need maximum attention?

Business value, after all, lies in understanding the tangible and intangible elements that determine the health and well-being of a firm and the economy in general.
