Abstract:
Since the inception of Boeing, the commercial aircraft industry enjoyed a virtual monopoly and was cash center of the company. After September 11 terrorist attacks and the subsequent economic recession seemed to shift the company's focus to the defence and space business, particularly with the federal expenditure for defence-related business going up and Riding on its strong political clout, Boeing bagged a majority of the defence contracts, which made it see through the severe economic crisis.
