One area where Democrats are hoping to work together with President-elect Donald Trump is infrastructure.
Before he was elected, the Trump team put out a proposal for infrastructure that would include public-private partnerships and tax credits for companies to invest in roads, bridges and more.
Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with University of Minnesota professor David Levinson (@trnsprtst) about the economic arguments for and against such a plan, and why infrastructure shouldn't be thought of as a jobs program. Levinson is also author of the book "The End of Traffic," and writes the Transportist blog.
