2. You can't just transfer a plant like that and expect it will be the same

South Carolina simply doesn't have the industrial skills for this kind of thing (although I've been told the golf courses are outstanding. No doubt). The illusion that all of the US is the same is just an illusion. It depends on massive transfer payments from the developed parts of the US to the underdeveloped parts. But those transfer payments produce only a surface patina of similarity, not a real industrial economy that can produce stuff like jetliners.
It'll be hilarious to see the Europeans, who apparently realize the gift Boeing gave them, come in and prove the point for good.
