Silicon Warfare w. Chris Miller

Silicon Warfare w. Chris Miller

Can chips save Taiwan? Will China win the techno arms race? Will Biden's CHIPS Act work? How do we read chip geopolitics? Why the Chip 4 Alliance? What do lithography sanctions do? All these and more.

Delve into the geopolitics of semiconductors with Chris Miller, author of the new book Chip War: The Fight for the World's Most Critical Technology. We discuss how the history of chips in modern warfare, the US-China tech race, Taiwan’s ‘Silicon Shield’, what could happen to the industry amid a war over Taiwan, the risk posed by Huawei and SMIC, the big players across each segment of the chip industry and their geopolitical weight, the CHIPS Act, the inefficiencies of state-led technology strategies, the Chip 4 Alliance and many more topics.

Chris Miller is an Associate Professor of International History at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, Jeane Kirkpatrick Visiting Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and Eurasia Director at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. Besides Chip War, he has also the author of The Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy: Mikhail Gorbachev and the Collapse of the USSR and Putinomics: Power and Money in Resurgent Russia.
