Federal regulators are expected to issue a preliminary finding next week concerning Boeing’s petition to slap hefty duties on U.S. imports of Montreal-based Bombardier’s C Series jetliners. There isn’t much doubt how the government will rule, because this is an open and shut case. Bombardier has leveraged billions of dollars in government subsidies from Ottawa and the Quebec provincial government to engage in predatory pricing of its C Series, with the aim of taking market share (and jobs) from the U.S.-built Boeing 737. I have written commentary for Forbes here.
