CEA's Shapiro Touts Entrepreneurial Spirit
Competition was also a theme raised during the conversation on broadband and net neutrality. "This is a strategy of CEA. We want wired, wireless, fiber optic, etc. We want competition. I have never been excited about net neutrality because if you have choices of broadband then you don't need it."
Shapiro is a great proponent of working with foreign countries in a variety of aspects, including free trade. "We shouldn't close our borders. We can risk American lives in Korea, but we send the message that the country is not good enough for trade agreements."
In terms of visa caps, Shapiro believes the country should practice "strategic immigration" to once again welcome the brightest individuals from all nations, while also keeping them here once they have earned their degrees. "We have put up a 'We Don't Want You' sign in attitude and practice."
