The US wants to rely less on Asia for the latest tech.



Read more about TSMC's plans to build a US-based chipmaking plant.

Wonder if this will make products cheaper. Depends on overall logistics I guess.

Good start, I hope the US and UK/EU start following suit with other products, It's not good to be reliant on Asia for everything.

Umm I wonder if some people understand that TSMC stands for Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company. This isn't reducing reliance on Asia, this is putting an Asian plant in the USA, LOL!

It lowers the reliance on having to import things from Asia, That's a good thing considering how many problems come out of that continent.

Yeah thought this was pretty obvious.

Also brings jobs back from overseas and brings in more taxes from the workers to boost the local/State economy.

Globalism is being wound back, nationalism is on the rise.

Hopefully we, as in humanity, find a happy balance and don't swing too hard towards nationalism. Both ideologies have pros and cons, but the cons of nationalism seem more violent.

Oh I'm all for it, don't get me wrong, but I was more poking fun at Mark's wording, nothing more. I welcome our new Asian overlords, wherever they set up shop.

Nationalism can be a good thing when done properly without going to extremes, Globalism is way too unstable and unpredictable.

Nationalism and globalism aren't really opposing ideologies, the opposite to globalism would be protectionism, countries can be both globalist and nationalist at the same time really(As nationalism is predominantly a social policy issue that not only doesn't explicitly oppose the use of foreign exploitative labour[Including slavery and wage slavery] but in many cases may encourage it). Though of course the current US administration is an example of a government that's both nationalist and protectionist anyway.

Excessive protectionism is usually considered one of the major contributing factors to the Great Depression, and generally does more harm than good as a blanket measure, but when used sparingly and well targeted to specific industries a little bit of protectionism can still be quite a good thing(And sometimes it's necessary to save threatened industries or ensure companies aren't using exploitative measures both in terms of taxes and rights).
