China Bullet Trains Trip on Technology

Excellent article on the possible causes of the high speed train crash in China.

China Bullet Trains Trip on Technology - WSJ

And unfortunately the 50 cent commenters are at work...

My take aways on the tragedy:
  1. Completion date was more important than safety.
  2. Building a domestic industry was more important than using proven solutions.
  3. Foreign suppliers were afraid of their technology being stolen, so they supplied items as a black box with limited information.
