In an op-ed for The New York Times’ Privacy Project, U.S. House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., writes that U.S. citizens seeking more data privacy and security should focus more on technologies than government regulation. McCarthy discusses the calls for "brute government intervention" to solve privacy issues, but adds, "I don’t think we should feel confident that the bureaucratic leviathan has what it takes to develop or enforce nimble responses to rapid change in the technology industry." Instead, McCarthy proposes that "technological advancements can meet Americans’ demands for privacy, and perhaps already are, through cryptonetworks." Blockchain is chief among the tech solutions McCarthy believes can fulfill the desires for privacy. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
