Even a crisis can create opportunities. It may not be apparent in the immediate wake of crises, when fear & concern is still the driving our thinking that in reality we may have already entered a period of rebirth and with that an opportunity to rethink [our own and corporate] ethics, values & practices to deal with the fallout of COVID-19.

In October 2004 the U.S. hauled Airbus in front of the World Trade Organization, calling European loans to Airbus illegal subsidies. Since then, there have been counter-complaints and negotiations and appeals. Meanwhile, a global pandemic has walloped the aerospace industry, and China is making a serious run at getting into the civilian airliner market.
