    China is good at building all infrastructure.

    Why? Communism.

    In China, the government has TRUE eminent domain.

    In America, we spend DECADES jumping through regulations and such to attempt the construction of a state to state railway, highway, ect...

    We spend countless years and hundreds of millions of dollars, just to ATTEMPT future construction.

    An example of this is the failed California speed rail.

    If this were China, it would have been done yesterday.

    Our system in America is both good and bad, but no doubt about it, communism makes it easier to get things done quicker.

    Without checks and balances, they are free to do what they wish.

    Because its state owned and the people have no rights. Its a lot easy to build the lines when you can just take land and not even have to pay for it.
