In a poor infrastructure condition,
But reversing neglect
Would lead, I expect,
To many a full-time position."
The Wall Street Journal's Alan Murray surveyed chief executives of some of the world's largest companies through the paper's CEO Council.

Typical was the comment of Marcelo Claure of Brightstar Corp., who said: "Upgrading our subpar infrastructure in the U.S., and even considering options like privatizing infrastructure if needed for funding purposes...would be a good place to start delivering meaningful jobs in the U.S."
