The magic city - A-town corridor. This could boost the hip-hop industry.

it's like Bos-Wash and Chi-Pitts the southeast is Piedmont Atlantic

"a regions that plan will have a strategic advantage" the southeast isn’t progressive on hi-speed rail as the other regions that means were already behind.

We can only hope.

In most metro areas, it's hard enough to get gov'ts to think regionally. Turf wars reign; sometimes for good reason.

Compare the wiki map of emerging mega regions to the map of the proposed high speed rail lines. I see a lot of overlap.

Its not hard to imagine that high speed rail would help spur the development towards mega-regions.

Well, there was just a grant given to help develop the HSR from Atlanta to Charlotte.

I hate to be a pessimist here but that video is so full of pie-in-the-sky boosterism that it makes it seem like a lot of these projects like intercity rail can be accomplished in just a few years rather than decades. I'm also skeptical to a lot of the ideas due to the fact that we can't even get our own suburbs to agree to work together as a region. What makes us thinks large cities are going to automatically fall into line?
