Trump talks Carrier into staying in Indiana

I recognize this decision hardly solves the issue of manufacturing jobs moving out of the United States, but it still bodes well. It is a good start, especially since Donald Trump is not yet in office.  

United Technologies, that happens to own Carrier, also happens to have billions in various government contracts. That would include Pratt & Whitney and the F-35 engine contract. While I doubt there was overt quid pro quo, it does make sense for United Technologies not to pull jobs from the USA right now.
