Best New Ideas in Money: Making chips at home again
In a podcast exploring “innovations that rethink how we live, work, spend, save and invest,” Michael Kozicki (pictured), a Fulton Schools professor of electrical, computer and energy engineering who came to ASU from the semiconductor industry, is joined by Willy Shih, a Harvard Business School professor of management practice in business administration. Kozicki and Shih discuss the recent plan adopted by U.S. government leaders to subsidize domestic manufacturing of advanced semiconductors, most of which are now made in Asia. They look at trends in semiconductor manufacturing and the economic and technological challenges the U.S. faces in gaining a strong foothold as a leader in the industry. Kozicki says a good sign for the future would be seeing more students coming to U.S. universities to pursue careers in microelectronics.
