Point Roberts, WA, United States, 2005/08/10 - HomelandDefenseStocks.com Presents Audio Interview with Jim Smith, Homeland Defense Business Correspondent for Jane’s Defence Weekly, MSNBC, BBC, and CNN..
HomelandDefenseStocks.com (HDS), an investor news portal for the homeland defense and security sector, is pleased to provide an online audio interview with Homeland Defense correspondent Jim Smith. Mr. Smith is a business defense correspondent and print journalist for the trade magazine Jane’s Defence Weekly, as well as being a frequent on-air television personality on MSNBC, CNN and the BBC discussing investment opportunities and financial activity within the defense, aerospace, and naval sectors.
During the interview, Mr. Smith, a resident of London, discussed the effect that the London bombings have had on the overall Homeland Defense industry, as well as the effect on the city’s populace and retail and transportation industries. In answer to the question of whether or not the financial community has become more accepting of terrorist activity, given that the market took considerably less time to self correct following the London bombings, Mr. Smith said, “The community is not getting used to terrorist activity so much as the fact that the media has not gone into the depth of coverage of the latest events that they did after 9/11 and indeed the Madrid bombings.”
In describing the effect that the London bombings has had on the City itself, Mr. Smith stated that, “Retail businesses in the vicinity of mass transit centers have experienced significant downfalls. People are still a bit jittery and are refusing to use mass transit. Therefore retail locations in the City center are seeing much less foot traffic than they are used to.”
