Re: Thinning the herd

There are many aircraft manufacturers.

What you refer to as consolidation is more akin to monopoly.

Take, as recent examples, the Airbus A-380 and the Boeing 'Dreamliner'.

While the Airbus was running a little late, the US mounted a massive propaganda attack, attack articles were repeated or echoed in Japan, all english-speaking countries, europe, doubtless other places.

The 'Dreamliner' ended up much further behind schedule, had serious technical and production problems, but the articles were all 'Aw, can't be helped, it's gonna be just the GREATEST PLANE EVAR!!!'

Check for yourself if you don't recall.

Apple is similar.
