A reference to a train station in China which was built in nine hours is an example of what Shervin Pishevar tweets as “frictionless” innovation. In the city of Longyan, 1500 workers were coordinated to build a station to connect three railway lines to the newly constructed Nanlong Railway. The trains on the new railway will support speeds up to 200 kilometers/hour. According to Shervin Pishevar this railway, another model of China’s “speed of execution,” is expected to be complete by the end of 2018 connecting southeast China to central China.

32/ “Speed of execution across many sectors from other regions is startling. Very little of frictions that are becoming systemic fractures here”
Congress and the President have been seesawing with the Mexican Border Wall issue for over a year demonstrating a poignant case of American systemic fractures. President Trump’s estimated cost of the concrete Mexican Wall Border is approximately $10 billion dollars although some estimate the cost to be nearer to $15 to $25 billion. The timetable for the construction and placement of the precast concrete panels alone is estimated at two years.
The Shervin Pishevar tweets are worth consideration and investigation. China built their “Great Wall” over 2000 years ago. Which choice embraces the future: Trump’s suggested concrete wall border that “might” prevent people from illegally entering the United States or a state of the art train system revamping America’s aging transportation infrastructure?
