Discussion of “Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology”
March 23 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pmFree
For our March monthly online book discussion, Austin Forum board member and AMD Senior Fellow, Mike Ignatowski, will lead us in a conversation about the book “Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology.” In this historical account that reads like a thriller, Chris Miller brings context to the current state of microchip technology and semiconductors and how that plays a role in geopolitics, national security, and the global economy. He takes readers on a journey that starts with the birth of Silicon Valley and ends with a competitive US-China relationship reminiscent of US foreign relationships during the Cold War. Join us as we discuss Miller’s work; the complexity of the situation; the implications these complexities could have on the global status quo; and what the future looks like in a world where resources are scarce, the supply chain is unstable, and stakes are high.
