Morning Joe Charts: Infrastructure and Research & Development

On Morning Joe this Tuesday, September 13th, we discussed the US government’s decline in investments in infrastructure and spending on research and development. The charts below show the decline in both of these fields over the last few decades (as percentage of GDP), as well as the “report card” issued by the American Society of Civil Engineers, which rates overall state of US infrastructure with a “D.” For the video of the discussion of these charts, please click here.
