#China Belt and Road Initiative Explained Thread 👇

#BRI (via @IIF )
1) Invest billions in countries every other investor in the history of the world whether public or private has passed over because of corruption, crime, weak institutions, no education, list goes on infinitely
2) Realize that those countries (or projects) will never be able to repay the debt for the investment but it's ok because #China gains geopolitical and military influence

(one wonders why nobody has has sought this type of influence in the past, except for the Soviets)
3) Try to get other countries to "participate" i.e. pay for the bad investments while retaining the geopolitics upside.

Nice plan if you can make it work.
