Just came across this article today at YahooNews and wondered, "if China can do it, why can't America?" since we are the greatest, richest, most modern country in the world! Why is it so damned hard for us to get our act together and start doing some nation building at home to boost our economy?
If I hadn't read the article, I'd swear those words were spoken by President Obama. But there weren't. They were spoken by Chinese President Hu Jintao at the annual Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.To strengthen infrastructure development is key to promoting recovery and achieving sustained and stable growth.
Governments should play an important role in infrastructure building and step up financial support for infrastructure development.
