Playing Defense: US Policy Tightening and Implications for the Technology Sector

Anxiety about China’s rise as a technology power has triggered an overhaul of many US regulatory regimes: investment reviews, rules for the export of “foundational and emerging” technologies, government procurement, 5G and other infrastructure vender restrictions, visa policy for students and researchers, and even new “industrial policies” are all under implementation or discussion. Washington has ramped up action against Chinese firms, researchers and executives alleged to have violated US laws. This flurry of national security activism has implications for US technology firms and investors. Room to embrace Chinese capital, collaborators and suppliers is curtailed, and interactions with non-Chinese foreign players is also reshaped.  Changes to technology sector tariffs could endure beyond the near-term, altering our production chains and export competitiveness. Rhodium Group’s Daniel Rosen will take stock of this crowded slate of policy interventions, and explore a research agenda to ensure Washington is mindful of the costs.
