Biden signed an executive order that should bolster the US chip manufacturing market.  America has always been a leader in chip wafer design and production, but every year there is a slight decline in market share.  On the other hand, China is making up to a $1 trillion in investment into their chip market while they continue to gain market share.  This is not only a financial concern, but also raises security concerns.  The current shortage of electronic components is a great example of how the reliance on production in other countries could be a detriment to overall production in the US. Biden’s executive order may make the difference, but it will not be soon enough to solve our current dilemma.
