Quote of the day: Chinese investment as a post-modern joke

Posted on

Sometimes someone writes a paragraph that cuts straight to the heart of an issue, like this one from blog commentator Matt Usselmann yesterday:

Here we are, the UK having a GDP per person which is 5 times bigger than China, but we cannot build our own high speed railway line or nuclear power station without going to the Chinese cap in hand? Is that some kind of post-modernist joke?

I wish it were.
