    NetJets just placed the largest business jet orders in history:

    - 2010: 125 small Embraer jets $1billion

    - 2011: 120 large Bombardier jets $6.7 billion

    - 2012: 275 midsize Bombardier and 150 midsize Cessna jets $9.6 billion

    670 total orders, 225 firm orders (25 firm orders with Cessna)

    Only three years ago, amid the downturn, NetJets cancelled large orders with several companies including Gulfstream and Hawker.


    Nothing against it. This is a free market. But... :eusa_whistle:

    but???? liberals are really against free trade????? because they lack the IQ to know that protection removes our goods from world competition and so makes them inferior to those that are world class.

    Buffet is really an arch conservative but he knows he'd be vilified as the best symbol of greedy Republican capitalism if he didn't do the liberal lying PR he's doing.
