to build its high speed rail system. not that the u.s. actually has a company that knows anything about the technology behind high speed rail. i mean, look at amtrak still chugging along.
but wouldn’t it make more sense to tell these companies that in order to get the contract they have to establish offices in the u.s. and vocational schools that will specifically train people to be engineers. who does the government expect will ultimately maintain these trains? france? spain? canada?
