September Meeting: The New Silk Road, A Global Engineering Renaissance

posted Aug 15, 2017, 6:06 PM by Charles Mitchell   [ updated Aug 15, 2017, 6:06 PM ]
The New Silk Road, or the "One Belt, One Road" project as referred to by the Chinese, is the biggest engineering project in human history, which involves building corridors of development of high speed rail,  port and shipping development, dams, bridges and other infrastructure with the participation of 69 countries. In 2013, Chinese President Xi  announced China's support for this project, and in May of 2017, the first international conference on the "One Belt, One Road" was held in Beijing with the participation of 100 countries, including a delegation sent by President Trump.

 Speaker: Jason Ross is a science and infrastructure advocate with the Schiller Institute, who has also been the Editor-in-Chief of 21st Century Science and Technology magazine. He is co-author of the book length report The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land-Bridge. He also serves on the LaRouche PAC Science Research Team. In October, 2016 he addressed the New York City chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers on the New Silk Road. In April, 2017 Jason Ross spoke at a seminar held at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering on "The New Silk Road: A Global Engineering Renaissance". His specialty is how to create non-linear increases in productivity through the application of new scientific discoveries applied in  new engineering and scientific platforms, such as represented by the New Silk Road. He is also a specialist in what has been called the "American System" of financing infrastructure, established by the first U.S. Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton, in order to finance long term investments in new infrastructure, and overcome the infrastructure deficit which the American Society of Civil Engineers has repeatedly identified.
