asw7576 - you're so right, it's not a 'your money' issue, because the money the USA is currently living on isn't yours, it belongs to the Chinese, Japanese, Gremans and British - good luck with that!

PitCrew - I agree that the USA has a number of great companies doing their thing, and Boeing is one of the best anywhere. You're right about the labour cost levelling out eventually, as the Koreans have demonstrated recently and the Japanese showed in the 1940s and 50s. Also, it is good to remember that the Eastern nations are not good at innovation - the greatest steps in technology are taken in the US and Europe - and rely mostly on copying and continuous improvement to make market share.

wrong....the top deck this was started over was an aftermarket one built in the USA, for an Xray, that yes, was built in slovakia
