Who makes the world’s microchips? Taiwan

Pandemic-related kinks in the supply chain showed just how dicey it can be for nations without direct access to microchips. Chris Miller teaches international history at Tufts University, is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and Eurasia director at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. He joins host Krys Boyd to discuss how much of China’s interest in Taiwan is tied to its chip-manufacturing prowess – and what the U.S. might do to limit its need for foreign-made chips. His book is “Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology.”
