The presence of state economic development officials--and even a few governors--at the Paris Air Show indicates that efforts to woo business have risen to new heights. Today's New York Times reported delegations from Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Maryland, New Mexico, South Carolina, Washington, and the city of Cincinnati all had booths touting themselves as hospitable to foreign investment and the aerospace industry in particular.
