People: Prominent Economists
Erik Nielson

Chief economist at Unicredit in London. Danish with experience at IMF, World Bank and Goldman Sachs

Commentary
Erik Nielson has observed that the big idea that should be implemented now in the United States is a serious spending commintment to investment in infrastructure ... in the order of $500 billion to $1 trillion over a period of about 5 years. He makes the point that this is not an increase in spending over a ten year period simply because this spending is going to be essential at some point because the infrastructure is simply broken. The interview on Bloomberg News had the serious remark that most of Europe had better infrastructure than the US ... but the Bloomberg hosts only could respond with some jokes about their local roads being repaved and JFK (the airport) being considerably improved in recent years.
