Security Expert: “Buy American Doesn’t Sell Well Anymore Because It Means Give A Copy To The NSA”


We’ve previously noted that mass surveillance is killing American tech companies.

And Cisco just blamed its earnings slump on China’s disdain for NSA spying.

Security expert Bruce Schneier succinctly summed up the destruction of the American economy by the NSA’s surveillance yesterday:

Buy American doesn’t sell well anymore because it means give a copy to the NSA.

This is part of a bigger picture … the military-industrial complex (of which the NSA is a part) is killing the private sector economy. And see this.

    I live in Asia, and have used the same major US web hosting company since 2001. This year, have transferred to a local web host. The price was the same, no disadvantage except that this particular company didn’t speak English. Come to think of it, that’s probably an advantage these days.
    I know this is just anecdotal, but I’m sure others are doing the same, if for no other reason than it is an easy way to make one’s displeasure known.
