Abstract : You can always find an article in the newspaper about military or political espionage, but only recently have we seen literature on other countries stealing our economic secrets. The fact is that they've been doing it for thousands of years - not just enemies, but allies as well. What if someone claimed that the American economy loses over $50 billion each year due to economic espionage by other nations. You don't believe it? Read on! We must develop and implement intelligence policy to protect America's jobs and economy, while maintaining a delicate balance between government and business. I'll approach how I think this should be done.
