    China's high-speed rail project, the jewel of the country's transport policy and one of the most impressive feats of engineering in the world, has run out of money and will be scaled back dramatically this year.

    I always try to recommend Indian posters put this HIGH SPEED RAIL & infra thing in perspective, rather than make shallow blabbers of "bubbles" busting routinely -

    Keynesian economics Active fiscal policy

    @amoy, I fully support China's high speed rail. It is better to focus on rail rather than air.

    Rail moves far more people, needs less energy, and can run without fossil fuels.

    Good show by China.

    India also needs around 10000km of new high speed lines.

    Show me the money! The costs for constructing such rail lines in India are estimated to be $15–22 million/km!!!

    $15 million x 10000 = :confused1:

    Whatever, that amount is huge! Better to spend it on health and education, water conservation, agriculture etc.
