Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Better waiting than not building...??

The political economy cardinally changed. Before the 80s-90s, the states were silently building infrastructure for marginal financial returns - that equates to "useless" by today's paradigms, I guess. Now we pretend that anything "useful" and essential can be build by commercial transactions without any coordination by social interest, with handy profits to investors foremost. The problems will kind of solve themselves indeed.
