Foreign companies are financing road construction here in the United States then collecting the tolls placed on them for their trouble. A classic example is the LBJ in north Dallas.
The rebuilt freeway will be the first in the city to offer both paid and free lanes. It’s being built and largely financed by a team of investors led by Spanish toll road firm Cintra.
Private investors will control the project for 52 years, maintain all of its lanes and collect tolls on the optional paid lanes that will be several times higher than those charged by the North Texas Tollway Authority.
Not only are foreign investors rebuilding and operating roads, foreign companies are getting the contracts to work on them… and of course, foreign workers are brought in; we’re subsidizing jobs in China!
The Chinese workers are what? Sounds like a wake-up call to me…
