US: The boycotting of US companies
Rob Gaudet writes: "I received an annoying message from a friend in Austria. It contains a link to a website that proposes a boycott of American companies: http://peace-action.inbyron.com/core/boycott.html
RH: I suspect that the list may have originated with peace groups in the US. The Iraq war may have odd commercial effects. The US is insisting that the coalition of the unwilling have no part in the rebuilding of Iraq, while some companies in that coalition promote a worldwide boycott of American products. The boycott serves their purposes. How successful it will be only time will tell.
