For the social good: How the broadening definition of infrastructure is providing what cities and regions need to prosper

"social infrastructure,” such as hospitals, universities or workforce housing — or even key cultural amenities, including parks, museums or entertainment venues — have come to the fore in the investment community in more recent years.

On Jan. 6, 2024, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) temporarily grounded certain Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft for immediate inspection following an Alaska Airlines–operated jet’s emergency landing after a large section of the aircraft blew out shortly after takeoff.
