Rebuilt? Nah, this is new construction, new paths that the Europeans never considered. Remember the English/French was dividing everything up into cells for maximum control.

These are new construction projects.

====

China is not involved in repair projects.

That’s handled by the countries themselves, by the UN projects, World Bank, IMF, various Pan-African groups.

No,China’s major investments is different and separate from fixing. It’s new infrastructure that they’re doing.

====

China’s total investment in the African continent is still far less than the contributions from existing contributors.

But what they’re contributing is uniquely new.

===

Example:
They built a new railroad that goes where no railroad has gone before.

What do they care about the city infrastructures beyond the ports?

====

ou’re not seeing it.
When you create new roads on top of dirt, pouring Chinese rocks and Chinese concrete on top of dirt, you’re not repairing anything.

===

The neoliberal solution is holistic.
The Chinese are not neoliberals.

====

Pan Africa is here now and growing. China’s involvement is ultimately not all that much in $$$. Other groups pour far more money into repairs, microloans, local economy building, health and human rights.

In fact, a lot of neoliberal groups are PISSED at China’s “secret deals” with individual countries because China doesn’t care about what govt is in place, isn’t looking for a seat at their respective legislative tables.

But my main point isn’t so much about China. It’s that the USA is being foolish right now but that’s always been my theme
