has two nifty features on this story.

At the top of the page they have  a recovery meter showing the percentage completed for various recovery tasks such as home reparis, EQC claims and payouts, infrastructure rebuilds, demolitions and opening of the red zone.

Down the bottom they have a calendar of likely future events.

    So it’s going to take almost as long as it did to win World War 2?

    Great… Neal Stephenson is right. We simply can’t execute on the big stuff any more.

    Tom, this is more compatible to fixing post-blitz London.

    I have it on good authority that that took about 10 years.

    Also recall that most of the damage was done in February and even June 2011, this is 1,000 days since the September quake which produced a lot less damage in the city, not even 2000 road faults as opposed to tens of thousands for Feb.

    10 years for a war-impoverished country.

    Brasilia was built in 41 months, from scratch.

    And yet Brazil is in danger of not have all the stadiums ready for next years world cup, adding to a growing list of countries biting of slightly more than they can chew, India (commonwealth games), South Africa (World Cup) & Greece (Olympics) all spring to mind of places who knew 8 years out from an event the where,when & cost of what they needed to build & they still couldn’t do it.
