Tyler Cowen on the possible number of foreign spies:

But I wonder if the actual number of foreign spies isn’t larger yet. John Negroponte, former director of national intelligence, admitted in 2006 that the U.S. was deploying about 100,000 spies around the world. Given that the U.S. is the world’s technology and military leader, and yet has a relatively small share of global population, is it so crazy to think the number of people spying on us is larger than that?

The linked Politico article is good, too. Makes me wonder how much espionage has infiltrated the Utah Valley tech sector.
