America’s landlord is visiting this week – Here’s another interesting blurb from the NYTimes, people are always asking what “we make now”… planes, 200 of them -

The White House announced shortly after the ceremony that the Chinese government had agreed to buy 200 airplanes from Boeing in a $19 billion deal, the centerpiece of $45 billion worth of American exports to China that are tied to President Hu Jintao’s state visit to Washington. China has also agreed to scrap a policy that favors Chinese technology firms for big government contracts, a senior administration official said.

Incredible, almost half of the USA’s exports to China are from one company, Boeing. We’re not just building a plane here, we’re building a dream…
