In a radical departure from his previous books, Joe Giglio uses the techniques of popular fiction to dramatize how America s transportation system can be transformed into a vigorous engine for economic growth and to make clear that our ability to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive global economy depend on this transformation. The book recounts the conversations of two brilliant but self-confessed rogues: a disgraced journalist from Bedford-Stuyvesant trying to rehabilitate his career, and a Wall Street star and Talmudic scholar in prison for Securities Fraud. They explore how the Scarlet Woman of Capitalism can be seduced into financing and managing transportation systems that make money while providing better mobility for the American public. They suggest how government officials can control this process by remembering that saints don t always have to be dumber than sinners. And they look at how a generally clueless public (and its elected representatives) can be conned into acting responsibly for a change to assure the country a prosperous future . Funny, irreverent, and clear-eyed, the book gives today s savvy readers a refreshing dose of real-world insights into creating a New Covenant on transportation between the federal government, state and local governments, and private enterprise that will not simply repair a broken transportation system, but will turn it into a crucial generator of economic growth.
