In most prosperous countries, government officials go out of their way to promote the development of indigenous technology. They know that by developing a proprietory technology, the nation benefits in the long term as it is source of revenue. For example, the largest refineries in India, license technology from other companies for manufacturing petroproducts.
Big corporations take all possible measures to destroy potential competitors by spreading false rumours. If the decision makers in a country are short sighted and do not verify the facts before believing in these false rumours spread by the foreign companies, they end up destroying their own local businesses and nation as desired by the foreign companies.
