You can now invest in what could be the most morally reprehensible company ever

China Security and Surveillance Technology, a fast-growing company that installs and sometimes operates surveillance systems for Chinese police agencies, jails and banks, among other customers, has just been approved for a listing on the New York Stock Exchange. The company’s listing and the recent appointment of Li Runsen, the powerful technology director of China’s ministry of public security, to the board of the company, are just the latest signs of ever-closer ties among Wall Street, surveillance companies and the Chinese government’s security apparatus, The New York Times noted.

Isn’t this basically the same as putting money into the company that sold Zyklon-B? Can you imagine the PR implications if this is in your stock portfolio?
