As one of the greatest nations on the planet, the United States excels in a number of areas, innovation and entrepreneurship foremost among them. But something you might be hard-pressed to find at the top of anyone’s best-of list is infrastructure—specifically roads, rail and mass transit.

Whereas the U.S. spends less than 2 percent of its GDP on infrastructure, China currently spends around 9 percent on both domestic and foreign projects.

China has the most extensive network of high-speed rail in the world—approximately 7,000 miles’ worth, all told—with thousands more miles of track under construction. This will require untold amounts of natural resources.

And with China’s grand “One Road, One Belt” initiative underway, even more resources will be needed. The strategy, which harkens back to the famed Silk Road, is intended to open up new trade routes to Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

That's just one area where the USA could use China's help.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

China did not.

Just a few thousand Chinese contract workers did.

Thanks for once again writing such pitiful lies. The western 1/3 of the transcontinental railway was
built primarily by Chinese laborers. The toughest portion, through the Sierra Nevada, was built by
Chinese workers.
Your stupidity is only matched by your hatred of all things Chinese.
