Jonathan M. Feldman's article, "From Mass Transit to New Manufacturing," has been published in the April 2009 special "green jobs" issue of The American Prospect. The article explains how a new industrial-policy initiative for domestic production of mass transit products could help the United States overcome multiple economic challenges. It could provide high-wage jobs, generate tax revenue, expand exports, and reduce trade deficits. This mass-transit-production strategy requires a new kind of industrial and planning policy to overcome the limits of traditional public works.
