Finding The Facts On Vital Criteria Of
Huang advises US companies on managing Chinese manufacturing and he advises his clients to do their final assembly in the USA to prevent Chinese industrial spies from stealing their trade-secrets and violating their patents. By forcing companies to finish their goods in China to avoid US tariffs, Trump is setting them up to have their proprietary processes looted by Chinese competitors, who will then drive them out of business. But dearest to Huang's heart is the impact all this will have on STEM education, which relies heavily on components, not finished goods: you teach the next generation of hackers, makers, tinkerers, inventors and founders by showing them how this stuff works at the lowest levels, teaching them to assemble components into working systems. Those components suffer the highest levels of import taxes, while the finished goods that overseas engineers (whose education will not be taxed by these tariffs) create enter the country tax-free. Some of the most compelling jobs to bring back to the US are the so-called “last screw” system integration operations. These often involve the complex and precise process of integrating simple sub-assemblies into high-value goods such as 3D printers or cell phones. Quality control and IP protection are paramount. I often advise startups to consider putting their system integration operations in the US because difficult-to-protect intellectual property, such as firmware, never has to be exported if the firmware upload operation happens in the US. The ability to leverage China for low-value subassemblies opens more headroom to create high-value jobs in the US, improving the overall competitiveness of American companies. Unfortunately, the structure of the new tariffs are exactly the opposite of what you would expect to bring those jobs back to the US. Stiff new taxes on simple components, sub-assemblies, and tools like soldering irons contrasted against a lack of taxation on finished goods pushes business owners to send these “last screw” operation overseas.
