South Carolina is trying to win a bigger share of Boeing's aircraft building operations. The state will sell $85 million in bonds in part to pay for land for the aerospace giant. South Carolina wants to get in the business of building the new 777X -- but it has to take it from Seattle first. If Scotland were to pull away from the United Kingdom, what would its society look like? What would its economy look like? The Scottish National Party today issued a kind of mission statement to start answering those questions. In 10 months time, voters in Scotland will be asked, yes or no: "Should Scotland be an independent country?" And, would you lend your car to a stranger? A new company is betting that just as people increasingly rent their houses on Airbnb, they may also be willing to hand over their car keys.
