Modern life depends on microchips for the function of everything tech, from microwaves to phones to airplanes to drones. As important as microchips are though, their supply chain is just as fragile. In this episode of China Unscripted, we talk about the importance of microchips to the world economy, how a Chinese invasion of Taiwan could break the microchip supply chain, and how China is trying to shore up its chip manufacturing to insulate it from supply chain breaks. Joining us in this episode is Chris Miller, the author of Chip War: The Fight for the World's Most Critical Technology.
