Semiconductor Security: The Race to Revitalize US Chip Manufacturing


The 2022 CHIPS and Science Act is the centerpiece of the federal government’s efforts to rebuild America’s industrial capacity and secure greater independence in the production of critical technologies. Under the law, tens of billions of dollars in subsidies for manufacturing advanced chips have already been announced. This panel will assess this effort, its prospects for success, and how the law, and similar government efforts to promote critical technologies, will affect the US economy in the short and long-term. Featuring Michael Schmidt, Director of the CHIPS Program Office at the US Department of Commerce and Chris Miller, Author of Chip War, in conversation with Greg Ip, Chief Economics Commentator at The Wall Street Journal, and remarks from former U.S. Treasury Secretary and AESG Co-Chair Timothy F. Geithner.
