Ce scénario ferait plonger les USA dans une

This scenario would push the U.S. into a “deep and imminent recession,” according to – The risk of a recession in the U.S. and around the world worries investors as central banks are forced to tighten their monetary policies sharply to counter rising inflation.

But beyond this backdrop, other specific factors also threaten the US economy, and one of them that US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo singled out as a key risk during an intervention on CNBC yesterday.

He argued that America’s current reliance on foreign chip manufacturing risks a “deep and immediate” recession if interrupted.

“If you allow yourself to think about a scenario where the U.S. no longer has access to chips made in Taiwan right now, that’s a scary scenario,” Raimondo said. “It’s a deep and immediate recession. It’s an inability to protect ourselves by building military hardware. We need to make it in America. We need a manufacturing base that can produce these chips, at least in sufficient quantities, here on our shores, otherwise we’ll be dependent on other countries.”

It’s important to note that these comments come as Congress prepares to vote on a bill aimed at funding the manufacturing of semiconductors in the United States, the CHIPS Act, a more than $50 billion bill.

Ms. Raimondo responded to criticism of this significant funding by explaining that semiconductors are “the core technology needed to support all other innovation-based industries.”

He added that 90% of the state-of-the-art chips purchased come from Taiwan, adding that the country’s heavy reliance on foreign chip manufacturing poses a national security risk.
