Why is the federal government responsible for creating a new infrastructure?
Because to build pyramids, aka really cool big stuff, it takes a nation.
It seems to me that the market will find alternative options when petroleum is less lucrative...
I think we'd still be waiting on interstate highways, sewers, and water works, if we had waited on the market.

I mean really, how do you market; "If you invest in this, your poop will be processed, and your entire country will not stink, like, um, poop."

The market is great for some stuff. But, um, weird stuff that nobody wants to buy into, much less talk about?

Leave that to the Feds. They're really good great at that.
