    The government has no more money to spend on any project, what with the inner deals of most projects that finally get overpriced and cost escalation corrupted costs. Most of the money is now in private hands and many multi-billionaires have been crated,mainly illicit wealth. And this by all governments. WE appear to be in a state of Catharsis.
