Investing in California’s aging infrastructure, some believe, is an investment into our future. A new study concluded that, for every dollar a state spends on infrastructure, it gets back two, a multiplier not seen with other government investments.

The Think Long Committee for California estimates the state has deferred $765 billion dollars in infrastructure investment.

Many believe fixing our state’s infrastructure is a long term strategy and a commitment to the future.

So how we invest in it or disinvest in it is going to be fundamental to the future of our economy.

Concerns over our current and future economy were the topics of discussion during the Milken Institute’s California Summit. Folks, from up and down the state, from various regions spent the day collaborating on best practices to help our state remain globally competitive.
