China is in the midst of an infrastructure building boom. And it's not just the highways, dams, airports and high-speed rail lines being built at home. China is exporting its construction know-how around the world, including building and financing some 300 dam projects, including an estimated 100 dams in Africa. In Southeast Asia, there are Chinese plans for a high-speed train that will link Southern China to the ASEAN countries all the way south to Singapore.
Where is the U.S.A. in all of this? Way, way behind.
