    Re: Chipmakers asked to build advanced chip foundries in US

    Chips built in US foundries are likely to be significantly more expensive for the consumer..IF the proposed foundries are for consumer products.
    If they are to be built for military and security purposes, then the US will become no different from the Chinese Communist Party. The difference being, that the companies involved will be allowed to off-shore their tax commitments.

    Why does this feel somewhat like a precursor to war?

    Make it so you can be self sufficient when you normally rely on your opposition as your supply chain. The reasoning behind why is mild at best.

    No,more like 700 billion reasons. Why spend on healthcare or other infrastructure when you are in a constant state of war,or worrying there will be a war.

    Exactly. US have long been selling off and outsourcing, now they are panicked and fear losing control or being edged out and technology is everything nowadays. Not the first time the US would be hypocritical, not the last either.

    It isn't a precursor to war.
    The US doesn't start wars with countries that can actually fight back.

    Re: Chipmakers asked to build advanced chip foundries in US

    Meanwhile there is pressure in China to invade Taiwan while everyone is caught up with Corona-fever. I can't understand China, sometimes I respect them but then the stuff I've been reading since this crisis started has been very negative. With trump and the decline of the USA, who will be the next major world power? EU?

    Re: Chipmakers asked to build advanced chip foundries in US

    Put it in Europe, we got the tech nerds and actual innovative people here, also we got a better approach on things than the US ever will have to be honest, but I wonder if they would consider the cost of US or European workers compared to where it is from?`

    Worker costs is a big bottle neck world wide, look how they fire people because they have to close down for 2 months due to covid.

    Unlikely, they're too busy imploding currently, especially as Germany has asserted it's authority over the ECJ with regards to bailing out the southern countries.

    Re: Chipmakers asked to build advanced chip foundries in US

    They should build fab in Denmark, the worlds best little country, and its practically like Canada in Europe.
    Then they too could leech on our renewable power and brand them self as Green.

    Fabs in Europe wouldn't allow Trump to push out an 'I bring da big jobs' press release in election year though...
