As for Boeing, the company has repeatedly admitted it made a multi-billion dollar mistake in executing a plan to establish a global production chain for the 787, outsourcing work around the world. Boeing, which is America's largest exporter, a Dow component, and a developer of technology miracles , was not going to make the same mistake twice.

And let's admit it, the NLRB case was a tough one. Yes, Boeing said the wrong thing when it declared publicly that it was putting some Dreamliner production in South Carolina in order to avoid the possibility of future strikes. But at the same time, Boeing is increasing production of the 787 and obviously is not obligated to build every single one of them in the same plant.

So the two sides went into negotiations and settled their differences with compromises on both sides.

What a novel idea. Congress should try it some time.
