The California high-speed rail project is a disaster, and is a warning for the US about the difficulties of undertaking big projects without proper planning and expertise.
00:00:00 The California high-speed rail project is a disaster, with only a one-section section of the line complete and over budget and behind schedule. The project's funding is uncertain because of political fighting between Democrats and Republicans over mass transit. This is a warning for the US, as other advanced economies are able to build high-speed rail lines without such problems.
00:05:00 The high-speed rail project in California is facing numerous legal challenges, and would have been much more expensive and time-consuming if it weren't for the inexperience of the California High-Speed Rail Authority. This indicates the problems that can occur when big projects in the US are undertaken without proper planning and expertise.
