It’s not just a question of the taxpayers being stuck with the tab. Government financing means the government gets to decide what gets financed. Their decisions are almost invariably inferior to those of the free market place. That is why communism didn’t work, and the west is in decline because it has forgotten those lessons.

Street interests vested with long or short positions in Boeing are making a tempest in a teapot.

There is no evidence yet that Boeing will suffer much in stock prices. In fact, if you go to StockSafari TLD, you’ll see that as early as Jan. 11, the future prices of BA were known and expected to move between 72.7 and 75.7, which is exactly what happened. If BA were more bearish then, it would have so shown.
