OPINIONALYSIS: TMT: A Back To The Future Economic Plan
As we begin another unforeseeable New Year, most Americans still can't and should not feel greatly or falsely optimistic about our economic futures. That will be the baby in the middle of the street for at least until the end of this decade. No patriotic pep-talk, ‘speechifying’ or divisive rants by political partisans of any flavor will change the financial facts facing most of us everyday. The time has really come, and is surely overdue, for a truly 21st century Presidential 'Big Idea' that starts working instantly. Our passenger and cargo railroad system is the most glaring example of how far we have fallen behind in the 20th and 21st centuries. It is like the clogged and corroding arteries of a deteriorating body. Compared to smaller and larger modern industrialized nations across Europe and Asia, our passenger railroad system is an embarrassing relic. If President Obama or the next POTUS are genuinely serious about sustainable modern U.S.-based jobs and broader national economic development, then laying new tracks across America is the best way to renovate and innovate our stagnant economy. The austere piecemeal approach to improving our economy is simply not sustainable or effectively working. The infrastructural economic foundations of this nation are crumbling faster than our attention span to take systemic actions to repair it. Imagine an energy network of solar-paneled roofs atop high-tech maglev monorail train system cars and stations that have exponential economic effect on energy distribution, permanent mass employment, shipping commerce, local-to-regional tourism, diverse railroad related business development, increased interstate/intrastate commuting, reduced road/rail pollution, decreased highway congestion, plus a sustainable boost to a multitude of regional and local economies across the U.S. within 50 miles of an American made and built high-tech maglev train system. Additionally, pairing climate change infrastructure protection is inevitable when it comes to construction for the trans-American maglev train (TMT) system against weather related and other threats. Diverse high-tech design, construction, operation, administrative, maintenance and a wide variety of service jobs expand. Year-round multi-billion dollar boosts to domestic tourism become common, as well as foreign tourists who want to see much more of our grand and diverse continent because it will finally be much easier to do so — just like in their countries . . .
