As the USA faces massive economic crisis, leading mainstream economists as well as many public transport advocates are strongly recommending various alternatives for economic stimulus and stabilization. Calls have become more urgent for a major public works initiative in effect, a 21st-century version of the 1930s-era "New Deal" with particular emphasis on addressing America's dire infrastructure crisis involving bridges, urban utilities, railways, public transit, transportation electrification, and other aspects of critical infrastructure. Proponents of such a program argue it can bring jobs and economic uplift as well as providing crucial alternatives to petroleum dependency but it must include public transportation investment at its core.

A new "New Deal" would be a great way to jump-start the economy and replace crumbling infrastructure.

This makes perfect sense and would be a good time to add more light rail and high speed trains to the mix.
