Aren't we getting most of the workers from the Siberian gulags? I can't see labour costs being prohibitive in this venture. Materials sure, but the workers can walk there.

The real problem is there is no value in connecting two unpopulated areas which are thousands of kilometers away from any useful center within any of the countries that might be involved. Who's going to use it? Shipping companies? Wouldn't a boat be more effective than slogging materials thousands of kilometers by road?

and...Permanent Global Peace?
