Boeing is making a HUGE mistake by walking away from this deal. Brazil was counting on it, Embraer was counting on it. Now the government doesn't have the money to support its domestic airframer, and...

Everyone's now talking about a good CEO for Boeing. Most name Alan Mullaly. But I suddenly have a brilliant idea that Boeing can use for a reasonable fee. Why not Carlos Gosn? He's free. He dug...

Based on that article alone, I'd say, thank you, Quebec. If I understand it correctly, Quebec is so indignated by spending 1.3bln on the company when it was in trouble that they refuse to support it...
