the renewed focus on technology is positive as well for the U.S.-based semiconductor giant Intel. And, perhaps most importantly, onshoring this industry is great news for the country. There’s an opportunity to redirect some of our military funding into projects that we need, to grow jobs at home, and to ensure greater security in the technology we use every day.

AN AMERICAN MANUFACTURING RENAISSANCE If the government and the private industry could work together on this issue, then there could be a huge opportunity for a new kind of American manufacturing renaissance. If we manufacture these technology components at home instead of abroad, then more Americans will be employed in high-skilled manufacturing jobs, profits will become more reliable for the companies in the supply chain that need these components, and the U.S. military might save a ton of money on its Southeast Asia operations. It’s a win-win-win. But Taiwan certainly isn’t taking any chances... Perhaps seeing the writing on the wall, Taiwan’s multibillion-dollar semiconductor giant TSMC plans to offshore a new semiconductor plant in Arizona.
