To Know What’s Wrong With China, Look At Her Construction

Every time I walk down the street and see a new project about to break ground, I know that several billionaires are about to be made. Every time I see a project has been completed, I know that a few unknown “temporary workers” are about to become famous. In this country, the completion of an infrastructure project lays the groundwork for the beginning of an anti-corruption project. It’s a place where a bunch of people drown in a mere rainstorm, or when it’s reported that people died from a “thunder” on a train, or…well, you know…where the Harbin bridge that collapsed just 10 months after construction was completed left killed three drivers. At first, I didn’t think it was anything out of the ordinary.
