    actually unions ruined America by suicidally driving about 30 million jobs overseas because they care only about those few still left with union jobs.

    The most patriotic course is to make unions illegal again so Boeing can concentrate on making the best planes in the world, and not on greedy treasonous union thugs who would have Boeing operate and locate to suit the union thugs, and not suit international competition.

    Hmmmm, Maybe because Airbus is a government subsidized corporation that both the French and German governments have a vested interest in? If Boeing got the sort of subsidies that Airbus does it might just be able to spend all the billions it would need to spend to develop a more fuel efficient jet liner.

    what a minute, government subsidies come with strings and do more harm than good. Our best bet is to make government sponsored unions illegal so the company can concentrate on business.

    Brutus,
    Have you looked at the political and economic system in Europe lately, particularly in France? They don't have the same view of capitalism we do, and mix in a LOT more socialism. They're industries and major companies are almost all heavily subsidized. It's about the only way they can stay competitive on the international market. Germany is a little different, but it still provides a lot of subsidies for what it considers to be key industries.

    perhaps you have explained why France is so poor. It has about the same percapita income as Arkansas one of our poorest states. THe last thing we need is make work liberal bureaucrats trying to pick winners and losers with other people's money.

    Are you saying that un-American Unions, turned American business owners, into un-American business owners, by forcing them at gun point to relocate, because they weren't making enough money? They only had two vacation homes instead of the three their counterparts have?

    Seriously though, if Boeing wants to move let them move it's their right and their company, and this is still America. But when they blame their move on the Unions, instead of telling the truth, which is they will make more money somewhere else paying workers peanuts, that is just BS. They are trying to avoid public backlash for moving.

    Simple, they cheat. They are subsidized by France. The first airplanes they sold were free for the first two years, who wouldn't agree to that????

    Higher compensation rates in the united states means the planes from boeing cost more hence the orders going to the place that will build planes for cheaper.
