When a politician talks about high-speed rail, be warned that the costs are going to be substantially higher than the pie-in-the-sky marketing you’re hearing. Rail boosters use exaggerated ridership estimates and bare-bones cost analyses that turn a trip between Point A and Point B into the train to Debtsville.
Wendell Cox, who has written extensively about the problems created by America’s high-speed rail boondoggle, knows exactly why the data doesn’t add up—and the numbers will shock you. Please join Reason for a happy hour and discussion with Wendell and our own Adrian Moore about the future of high-speed rail in America:
