Abstract

Apart from the microelectronics and information industries based on large-scale integrated circuits and/or optical fibres, it seems to us that the frontiers of heavy industry at present have a tendency to be stagnant. However, large projects planned for the twenty-first century, such as the second Panama Canal, the Baikal-Amur Railroad in Siberia, the Great Dam of Itaipu, the Asian Highway, the Japan-Korea Tunnel, and the Seventeen Bridges to link Shikoku Island to the mainland of Japan, are left untouched.
