US president Joe Biden has emphasized his priority to improve US competitiveness through supporting entrepreneurship and education at home as well as investing in research and development.
- How does technology interact with Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ strategy and his goal of showcasing the benefits of ‘democratic capitalism’’ as an alternative to China’s model of ‘authoritarian capitalism’?
- What potential is there for the US to lead on new technology governance strategies and to what extent is US leadership compromised by existing gaps between tech policy in Washington and tech innovations in Silicon Valley?
- What governance approaches are preferred, from the point of view of technology companies, consumers, and advertisers?
