Here you are now. What?

industries the US government *doesn't* subsidize

Presumably there have to be some :)

Im interested in any US industry that is entirely free of subsidies in any form....so farming, for instance, is not entirely free because we have protective tariffs, payments for not farming certain things, and a bunch of other forms of subsidy.

Any subsidy for a specific part of an industry counts as that entire industry being subsidised....not entirely fair but hey.

By 'subsidy' I mean anything that provides substantial support for a particular part of an industry....so farming protection tariffs and grants, drug research for the pharmeticuticals(sp?) and so on.

So subsidised are:
guns/armaments
drugs
internet
farming
computer software industry (H1Bs)

unsubsidised are:
Computer hardware industry

...what else?
