  •  I predicted that our economy would take a hit (6+ / 0-)

    for this stupid policy on the day that these revelations came out.

    I believe that we're only seeing the beginning of that. And yes, Balkanization as well. Even if someone disagrees that the NSA is a "bad thing," for whatever reason, they cannot dispute the materially poor outcomes that its policies might have on global trade. Perhaps I'm arguing against my own precepts here thought since I'm fundamentally not a huge fan of global trade in general. So maybe in the very long term, we'll see good effects from this. But in the short term, we can count on a loss of tech-sector US jobs.
