Informal economic indicator #11b

Here’s another informal indicator that the good times are coming back. The back page of BusinessWeek (May 27, 2005) has a full-page color ad for the Dassault Falcon 7X corporate jet. This comes hard on the back of the news that Ferrari has opened a dealership in Silicon Valley.

Those interested might like to know that the Falcon 7X has a range of 5,700 nautical miles, and is capable of carrying eight passengers from Paris to LA in ‘library-quiet’ luxury. No details on pricing beyond the assurance that ‘it’s a business decision that will prove its wisdom for decades to come.’ Of course it is.
