Are we (Bus)ted ?

     

Shown above is the Chinese Super Bus concept that straddles traffic in an effort to alleviate traffic congestion. The buses are powered by electricity and solar energy and don’t take up any additional road space. These buses can hold up to 1,400 passengers. The Chinese are in the process of rolling out these types of buses by year end.

Yesterday the President spoke about America’s infrastructure and rightfully so as ours has been neglected for years. I heard a statistic the other day that China is spending approximately 10% of their GDP while we are spending only 2%.

Is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling that while we have been spending alot of money on two wars we are in the process of falling behind and might be able to catch up ?

  1. Yes. I spent summer 2008 in Beijing, and the public transportation there was better than in any American city I’ve been to (New York, Chicago, Washington D.C.).
