  1. An incredibly ambitious investment, but probably a wise one. Transport is a foundation that gets built on. New economic niches open up and new connectivities happen. Suddenly new sectors of society get the opportunity to travel to China, and it doesn’t seem so far away anymore. China also knows that in sectors such as this it can set a pace which the US can’t match any more. And of course it’s another way of getting its goods to Russia and the US.

    • It’s a much better idea than many people seem to think. Not sure if the US would allow it – but given that Russia and Canada probably will, it might not end up having much say in the matter.
