A few reasons why China’s Bridges are cheaper


Over at the Dish a reader wonders why a 26 mile Chinese Bridge is so much cheaper than a 2 mile refurbish of an existing US bridge. Maybe it’s the fact that median income in China is just under 10 times less than median income in the US and as we know from the iPhone factories, workers don’t have rights either.

Much like the slave trade in our country, forced, captive labor is the most effective and ghastly engine to their economy.
