Steve notes that:
“Everyone talks about China as the principle threat to the U.S. economy, but South Korean giants like Samsung have systematically stolen our intellectual property, copied our products, illegally fixed prices, and played our courts against us to dominate lucrative markets for years.”
Steve goes on to note:
“Move over China and Russia. With friends like Korea, who needs enemies? A better question is: why does the United States government let its allies – that we actually protect – so blatantly harm our corporations and our economy?”
