Thanks for the Interesting topic and detailed analsysis. Here are three personal observations I've made over the years(i) Geographically concentrated infrastructure capital is typically a lot more useful than spreading it thin to cover more area. Better to consolidate other factors around a hub, tremendously increasing marginal return per $ on infra (ii) Knock on effects and domestic linkages. Its basically not as effective if the bulk of what the capital procures is imported(iii) What I call the 'big-burden'... where infrastructure capital does not build projects with a sufficient relationship to increased income. The new infrastructure burdens the system with unsustainable maintenance costs. Sorry these are just qualitative observations i've made over the years, and I don't have much data to back it up .
