P3 Industry Responds to Attacks From the Right And Left

Industry reponse to Robert Poole’s column in PWF last month came fast and sharp.  Headlined “It’s Time To Respond to Populist Opposition,” the piece warned that even the natural allies of a market-based approach to delivering transportation improvements were on the attack. His column this month on p. 24 extends that warning even further, citing similarly uninformed attacks by the mainstream transportation media as a clear and present danger.

[For example, Tom Jackson, executive editor of Equipment World titled his August 1 column: “Toll Roads, P3s, and Creative Financing Will Bring Short-Term Gain, Long-Term Disaster for the Road Building Industry.”]
