    Abstract

    This paper addresses key aspects of the de facto industrial policy of the USA towards its aerospace sector and its implications for the trade in commercial class aircraft. I argue that US trade in aerospace products is the sine-qua-non of strategic trade and that the success of this sector results from a powerful and effective industrial policy which subsidizes commercial aerospace manufacturing. In consequence I suggest that the numerous US complaints in the 1980s and 1990s about subsidy and the role of the state in the European commercial aircraft industry are based on a misunderstanding of the real character of the American aerospace industry and arguably the aerospace industry per se.
