vbraga (228124) writes "This week, during the visit of the Chinese president, Hu Jintao, to the United States, G.E. plans to sign a joint-venture agreement in commercial aviation that shows the tricky risk-and-reward calculations American corporations must increasingly make in their pursuit of lucrative markets in China. G.E., in the partnership with a state-owned Chinese company, will be sharing its most sophisticated airplane electronics, including some of the same technology used in Boeing’s new state-of-the-art 787 Dreamliner."

isn't anyone paying attention to what we have done to ourselves? It is time to reverse the trend of buying goods from overseas, not exacerbate the problem by exporting our most exotic technology. To be an American in these times is to be ashamed. Sorry, but there it is.
