Should Washington give more help to Boeing and the others? Is a partnership with the Japanese the answer? These policy questions are raised but not explored by Mr. Newhouse; nonetheless, his excellent study, which incorporates a great deal of original research, should improve the quality of the public debate that seems bound to come.
