The author comments on the analyses made by U.S. Chamber of Commerce chief economist Martin Regalia amid what he called a "dour" U.S. economic picture. The author thinks that Regalia sounded a rather sinister bell when he said that the nation does not have the infrastructure to support an economy that could grow from $14 trillion in 2008 to $20 trillion in 2018. He observes that Regalia is much more optimistic in the short term.
