The Biden administration hopes to turn the U.S. into a hub for microchip manufacturing with help from Intel, but to reshore chip manufacturing, the U.S. needs to attract foreign talent. According to a CSET study, the chip industry would only need around 3,500 foreign-born workers to effectively staff new U.S.-based factories.

Geopolitical tensions between the United States and China have sparked an ongoing dialogue in Washington about the phenomenon of “decoupling”—the use of public policy tools to separate the multifaceted economic ties that connect the two powers. This issue brief provides a historical lens on the efficacy of one specific aspect of this broader decoupling phenomenon: using export controls and related trade policies to prevent a rival from acquiring the equipment and know-how to catch up to the United States in cutting-edge, strategically important technologies.

Drawing from his CSET report "Silicon Twist," Research Analyst Ryan Fedasiuk shares how the U.S. can mitigate the Chinese military's acquisition of U.S.-manufactured AI chips in an interview with FedScoop.

The White House supports transparency in American investment in critical sectors in China, but current export controls are not sufficient to prevent out-bound investment issues according to Research Fellow Emily Weinstein.
