Boeing will run into trouble due to outsourcing of components

Will Hopper : politician, investment banker
"Last Saturday the Financial Times reported five separate incidents occurring within a few days of each other affecting the structure of Boeing’s new Dreamliner aircraft. Happily no one was injured or killed, although some of these incidents occurred when the planes were carrying passengers. On page 140 of THE PURITAN GIFT, my brother and I drew attention to the weaknesses in the procedure known as “outsourcing” and held up this very aircraft as an example to be feared."
