Is an ideological agenda destroying the future of Boeing?
This is not a story about Boeing versus Airbus. It’s about the view in management schools that an unhappy, insecure and more anxious society is better for capital than one that is happy, cooperative and mutually reliant on common objectives. The most perplexing thing about Boeing for those watching its affairs from the ‘outer darkness’ of the rest of the world is the intensity of the ideological hatred from its management for its Washington state based workforce. A recent example of such corporate behaviour is claimed in this article to be Boeing’s announced agenda to shift its major engineering and research and design resources out of Washington state to low wage states.
