Invitation to Meeting of the Minds virtual event with Chris Hamel

We have really enjoyed the previous virtual event hosted by the Meeting of the Minds so we hope you will join us for the next one. “Why Haven’t Public-Private Partnerships Caught on for Infrastructure Financing in the US?” is planned for February 17, 2016 9:00 am PST.


The Municipal Market is the primary source of funding for infrastructure in the U.S. Despite concerted efforts to advance Public-Private Partnerships, this form of financing represents a minor component of infrastructure financing in the U.S. The Obama Administration has taken important steps to facilitate ways for the two models to work in conjunction. This webinar will discuss the potential benefits and how the best characteristics of the two models might work together to improve and accelerate infrastructure financing in the US.
