"intensive competition is being waged by national and regional governments to attract semiconductor manufacturing and [R&D] investment," the SIA report asserted".... U.S. "Trade" Policy & "GamePlan" => "oh-well ... SemiConductors are not important". Eventually - No U.S. Industry will be important (including U.S. Military ... which won't have much of a base to work from regarding "Next-Gen" Hardware ... ut let's not think about that - now!!!)

"SIA called for new U.S. tax and economic incentive policies to boost chip manufacturing and R&D".... whcih is when American Companies say they are "American Companies", please help us ... and then after the "American Companies" get the incentives (& bailout $$$ from U.S. Taxpayers) then they go back to Shipping U.S. Jobs Overseas and Hiring H1-B Workers for U.S. Jobs in the U.S.

Just shows you what foresight US companies and governemt have with regard to home-grown R&D. Companies are trading near-term stock growth and capital gain for far-term capability. Once all the expertise and manufacturing is abroad, what are WE left with here other than the consumer market?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
