Quote of the Week

Horses for Courses

"For China, high-speed rail has become a huge strategic move both domestically and internationally. The US market for high speed rail however is uncertain; the question being asked is not whether the US can build high speed rail, but whether it should at all. This question turns on whether these projects actually deliver the economic benefits they promise." 
John Foote, Executive Director, Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy, during a recent talk, entitled Horses for Courses.
