And don't forget trying to save yet more money by designing MCAS to work with the data from a single sensor (instead of three sensors that would have provided redundancy), save money by being secretive about MCAS to avoid re-training of pilots and hence maximise sales, generate extra money by making a warning system for a faulty MCAS sensor an "optional extra"...

Boeing can trot out the line of "We're committed to safety" as much as they like, but the fact is that during the development of the Max 8, "profit" was more important than "safety".
