No, wizards aren’t putting together Boeing Co. jets.
But Boeing and the Harry Potter books do have something in common: they both made the 2010 Economic Report of the President, which is prepared by the chair of the Council of Economic Advisors.
Most importantly, Boeing and J.K. Rowling’s books both are part of this wonderful thing called international trade.
If it weren’t for trade, the famous Harry Potter series would be stuck in the United Kingdom, depriving “millions of Americans” from reading the popular books. Likewise, the CEA writes:
More Americans can work as well-paid aircraft engineers or manufacturing employees for Boeing or as technology specialists for Apple because those firms are able to sell on a world market.
