TPI Aspen Forum 2023: Chips, China, and the New Frontier of Industrial Policy

The CHIPS Act heralds a new era in industrial policy. Real national security concerns and human rights abuses necessitate reducing China-dependent supply chains. Yet, beneficiaries of protectionist policies may use such reasoning to further their own goals, even if unrelated to national interests. While a wealth of historical experience in industrial policy exists, current dialogues seem to overlook past lessons. For example, discussions about the CHIPS Act rarely mention Sematech, which, while not a perfect analog to the CHIPS Act, was also intended to promote domestic chip design and manufacturing. This panel aims to untangle these multifaceted issues.

Panelists include:

  • Theresa FallonFounder and Director, Centre for Russia Europe Asia Studies (CREAS)
  • Xiaomeng LuDirector, Geo-Technology Practice, Eurasia Group
  • Christine McDanielSenior Research Fellow, Mercatus Center
  • Roger NollProfessor of Economics Emeritus, Stanford University
  • Scott Wallsten (moderator), President and Senior Fellow, Technology Policy Institute

The TPI Aspen Forum will be held at the St. Regis Aspen Resort in Aspen, Colorado from August 20-22, 2023. For more information and to register for the event, please visit www.tpiaspenforum.tech.
