These 33 Cities Cheated on Lead Contamination Tests, Similar to Flint, Michigan
 
At least 33 cities in the U.S. cheated when testing water for lead contamination. With these “cheats” the cities misrepresented the amount of lead in their water supply, according to a Guardian investigation.
 
Not only does this raise concern for those cities, but surrounding towns as well, The Guardian added. Several big cities sell water to almost “400 adjacent cities and towns.”

I think this problem is much more prolific than meets the eye. All kinds of sludgy filth and shit in our drinking water. Drugging us all with fluoride since I can remember. Now the infrastructure is decaying at a rate from which a recovery may tax the system beyond repair. Is it financially feasible for the corporate big wigs to make a profit by building up the infrastructure to a new modern level of quality and efficiency? Shareholders make all the difference. Who are the shareholders of the infrastructure?

Good Question!

 

10 Companies To Rebuild America’s Infrastructure
 
24/7 Wall Street has decided to take a look at the biggest companies which will lead in the rebuilding of America’s ailing infrastructure.  A recent report from Infrastructurereportcard.org gave the United States a grade of a “D” and said that the 5-year investment need was $2.2 trillion. What the real tally is may not matter, but America has to rebuild.
 
 
This is an old story. Doesn't seem to have made any kind of progress. Keep in mind that it's the banking structure that makes these final decisions. The US Treasury doesn't make any moves without approval from the Federal Reserve. 
 
Here's a look at the Top 10 shareholders of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank
 
The China-initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) took a historic step forward on Monday with the signing of a framework for the current 57-member institution.
 
The bank will have authorized capital of $100 billion, with China contributing to $29.78 billion and owning 26.06 percent of the votes, according to the agreement.
 
 
In Thailand the Chinese want concessions to help build up their railroad system. Recently the Thai government balked on negotiations as the Chinese wanted rights sort of like what the old American companies acquired back in the 1860s.
