East v West

Two years after a major earthquake, the New Zealand city of Christchurch has only managed to rebuild a modestly sized suburban library, meanwhile the Chinese has shown the world they can assemble a 30-story hotel in 15 days.

Admittedly this is a kitset hotel which has been manufactured off-site (which makes you wonder why the world doesn’t produce more manufactured kitset buildings) but it shows China’s vigour and determination when it comes to getting things done.  In contrast, the paralysed West seems to over complicate everything it attempts.
