It takes American high speed rail 3.5 hours to go from Boston to NYC costs $150+. The same trip via car is 4 hours.... What about that exactly is high speed?

Infrastructure construction in China aims to benefit people, instead of generating profits for company.. IMO, that's one of the big difference between China and capitalism country.
XasthurWithin - Vor 2 Tage
The answer to "why do they do this if it isn't profitable" isn't just "politics", it's the fact they have a socialist system where the profit motive does not govern the economy. Instead of profit, the use-value for the people guides economic investments in China.

Isn’t it obvious that they stole the technology from Japan and from Germany? Compare the design of the Japanese bullet train and Chinese high-speed rail. It’s ridiculous to claim that it’s because of their technology.

One reason I love living in Hong Kong so much is because of the MTR system, you can pretty much get anywhere within the country/city in an hour, it's crazy convenient and it sucks that the rest of the world can't keep up. I'd take the MTR over driving any day because it's consistent, cheap, fast and you can pass out for the entire journey, it's great.

I took this comparative economic development class in school. And the professor talked about the reform of China since 1978 and some major issues China faces. One of them was China had a weak infrastructure. Most of the coastal cities which are benefit from open door policies are highly developed while other cities in the middle far from the sea relying heavily on natural resources are slow in economic development. One way to resolve this was to build better infrastructure and roads to connect the major cities to the cities in mainland. Which Is exactly what China is doing. Build high speed Trains

High speed efficient transportation to the furthest outreaches of a nation have always been recognized as essential to nation-building. United States famously celebrated completion of their transcontinental railway (through Native American land) at Promontory Point Utah and what was known as the Dominion of Canada at the time celebrated it's Last Spike at Craigellachie in British Columbia in 1885 (also through appropriated aboriginal traditional territories and somewhat ironically built with Chinese labourers). So china is just following by example reaching out to Xinjiang and Tibet.

There’s no bad motive, in fact ethnic minorities also need an opportunity to develop and high speed rails provide that opportunity. What the video didn’t tell people is that ethnic minority regions are mainly arid inland places without available ports to connect to the outside world(meaning no easy trade and transportation and bad economy), and the people don’t really want to stay apart and poor. Don’t ask me how do I know, I’m from one of such places and I have been counting down for the past almost 10 years for the first high speed rail to operate in my homeland. Just please, please, please ask the ones who truly live in those places to get your information, instead of judging no matter what.

Why? Because the price of the ticket is a small fraction of the real cost. The rest of the cost is paid for by Chinese taxes. For example, if the ticket costs 65, but you pay 465 extra taxes to subsidize the ticket price. That is a false economy. China is very foolish to have spent so much money on these unprofitable high speed trains. The Chinese people will be paying for it for generations.
Trains are most efficient carrying very heavy loads long distances at a slow speed. Even the most full passenger train car is almost empty weight in comparison. Just ask any automotive engineer with any heavy industry background. These kinds of high speed trains are foolish nonsense economically.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rail_subsidies "Rail subsidies are largest in China ($130 billion) and Europe (€73 billion), while the United States has relatively small subsidies for passenger rail with freight not subsidized."

I don't get how a country's development of its infrastructure can be presented as a negative ? Integration and efforts into making the separatist provinces more familiar or identify with the Chinese identity (Consists of 56 ethnic groups). Stop forcing democracy (Works only when a mass population is educated) onto China, where history, social and sovereign factors impact on so much why a more centralized government is required. If you're out to disintegrate and cause harm to China, you're doing the right way. If you're truly for freedom of speech, relative human rights (compared to western countries), i just beg for you to think of this. Has any transition of power been peaceful and would democracy actually work while respecting the integrity of the country (China)? If you wanna argue how evil the CCP was in the past, well that's the past. Political reforms have been one of the key characteristics of Chinese socialism (the current CCP), it has come a long way and suffered. If you wanna settle a score with someone just because his ancestors did this and that. Well, maybe just maybe, the White folks have lost the plot ever since Renaissance. Cause your 'democracy' and 'freedom' is just ur narrative of a political correctness forced upon other groups regardless of their social, cultural and historical factors.

@Splinter- Memes I agree, but the idea that a transparent government and foreign aid can help underdeveloped and developing countries is quite naive as well. From both sides, foreign aid isn't gonna come for free. Secondly, most underdeveloped countries and developing countries probably have major problems with corruption and social factors such as nobility, land owners etc. To be honest, i'm not even pro-CCP. I'm just annoyed by how naive and dangerous the separatist movement is in HK (What's at stake isn't only HK, its the entire integrity of China as a nation). I would appeal the whole world to a system more like Singapore, Meritocracy.

Mao's regime had left a large percentage of people in poverty. Now, if you were a peasant living in rural China and living in poverty, which would you prioritise: 1. Dual Universal Suffrage and all civil liberties combined. 2. Food on the table, jobs to do, water to drink, roof over the head, electricity. This is exactly why perfect democracies are not in underdeveloped nations. Underdeveloped nations require as little corruption as possible, a transparent government, an educated workforce and co-operation from foreign governments. But the most important part is a government that makes progress; Government that does its best to apply all the elements I placed. Trust in the government is important, but democracy is not a crucial ingredient.

It took the US six years to build the transcontinental. Now, it takes a decade to lay one overpass in Fresno that goes nowhere.
When California had to replace a quarter section of the earthquake damaged San Francisco Bay Bridge, it took 11 years and 13 agencies. 82 years ago, our ancestors built four times the length of that replacement in less than 4 years. In 1936, just one agency oversaw the entire bridge project.

What this video fails to point out is most of the workers in China are treated like slaves and they have no workplace safety rules or any worker rules to safeguard them against abuse which is what America had in the late 19th and early 20th century until the US Government and Labor Unions were born in the early 20th century which paved the way for America to have a blue-collar working Middle Class.

China operates what is called "sweatshops" which means a factory that operates outside of the rules and regulations that should be in place to protect workers against Corporate abuse.

Typically, sweatshops often have poor working conditions, unfair wages, unreasonable hours, child labor, and a lack of benefits for workers.

As of October 2018, despite the rapid growth of the Chinese economy in the last few decades, more than 482 million people in China – 36% of the population – live on less than $2 a day. Let that marinate for a moment.

Thanks to NAFTA (North America (Screw US Workers) Free Trade Agreement, America is slowly inching towards sweatshop status thanks to countries like Sweden who had had companies like IKEA and AAK open operations here who treat American workers like crap.

I call it the Nordic Whoring of America in which IKEA and AAK have found a sneaky way of keeping wages for American workers in their facilities on US soil very very cheap.

IKEA opened a plant in a job starved region of Virginia and after getting the local community to pony up more than $12 million in tax breaks and other subsidies (as an inducement for IKEA to locate its factory in this job-starved region of Virginia), it didn’t take long for the company to show its true colors.

IKEA then hired a union-busting outfit to keep the IAM (International Association of Machinists) from making a run at the employees, they proceeded to drastically slash employee wages and unilaterally modify long-standing work and overtime rules. Needless to say, these measures not only would have been frowned upon by Swedish society, but most of them would’ve been illegal. They would have been in violation of Sweden’s labor laws.

Now As brutal as the Danville crackdown was, a similar move is occurred at the AAK (AahusKarishamn) oils and fats processing plant, in Louisville, Kentucky. The Louisville plant was formerly owned and operated by Golden Brands, but was sold to the Swedish multinational corporation in July 2011. Despite having had a fairly cooperative relationship with Golden Brands for more than 25 years, once the company changed hands, things turned ugly in a hurry.

Within months, AAK launched an unprecedented anti-union campaign, one that culminated in—and this is going to sound preposterous—the company circulating a decertification petition, urging the fifty members of Chapter 320 of the National Conference of Firemen and Oilers (NCFO/Local 32BJ SEIU) to voluntarily leave their union.

Now if you think that was arrogant, it was because had management dared circulate a union decertification petition in Sweden, the company’s executives would’ve been strung up by their Buster Browns and pelted with lingenberries. I have been to Sweden and Sweden has some of the toughest labor laws in the world bar none so these companies left Sweden because of that looking for a more tolerable pasture and they found it in the USA.

How is that for irony!
