    Default Boeing and Bombardier

    I found this pretty informative.

    They left out a few things that I think are pretty important, but all in all it sums it up pretty well.

    Boeing tried to leverage the current political climate to kill a far superior technology, that employs 22,000 US manufacturing jobs. And if Boeing gets it's way that exactly what will happen.

    Is this what capitalism looks like now?

    It's what capitalism has always looked like: who can buy better influence. It's never been about the better product winning - if it were, we'd still see Tucker as an automobile manufacturer.

    And **** Boeing for that ******* move. But it's nice to know that our regulatory commissions are still the best that money can buy.
