In a Win for the U.S., the U.K. Moves to Oust Huawei From Its 5G Rollout
The United Kingdom's move to oust Chinese tech giant Huawei from its telecommunications networks in the coming years will not only impede the country's 5G rollout, but will further dim hopes for a U.K.-China trade deal that could help London expand its economic relationships beyond Europe post-Brexit. But the decision nonetheless marks a significant victory for the United States, which has been pressuring its European allies to purge Huawei from their 5G infrastructure -- especially if the British ban ends up being replicated elsewhere on the Continent.

U.S.: Cisco's CEO Rebuffs Idea for Taking an Ownership Stake in Ericsson or Nokia
Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins said his company would not invest in building infrastructure for 5G telecommunications networks and brushed off U.S. Attorney General William Barr's suggestion that U.S. companies should invest in or take control of European telecom equipment makers Ericsson and Nokia to counter Huawei's 5G influence, the Financial Times has reported.

By Mixing Tech and Human Rights Sanctions on China, the White House Crosses the Rubicon
Conspicuously absent from an emerging China-U.S. trade truce is the outstanding issue of U.S. export restrictions against Huawei. The omission reveals an uncomfortable and growing reality for U.S. tech firms: Politically convenient trade truces will come and go, but the strategic competition between the United States and China is deepening. Technology is a fundamental component of this broader rivalry, which also makes it a radioactive element in the trade talks and a prime target for China hawks advocating a decoupling of the U.S. and Chinese economies. At this stage of the competition, national security, human rights and sovereignty are getting mashed together along with American public attitudes on how to contend with China when it comes to shaping U.S. policy. As a result, the political room to negotiate on an issue like Huawei is narrowing by the day, driving a more hard-line U.S. policy toward China overall.

China, India: Beijing Threatens 'Reverse Sanctions' if New Delhi Bans Huawei
China has threatened to place "reverse sanctions" on Indian companies operating in the country should New Delhi decide to block Chinese tech giant Huawei from its market, Reuters reported Aug. 6. According to the leak cited by Reuters, the Indian ambassador to China reportedly met with Chinese officials on July 10, where they discussed Beijing's concerns about the U.S. campaign to bar Huawei from the world's 5G infrastructure. During the meeting, Beijing also allegedly said that it hoped India would make its own "independent and objective decision." The threat could be a sign that China is willing to take a more aggressive stance against other countries blocking Huawei's involvement in their 5G networks at the behest of the United States.

Why Europe Won't Shut the Door on Huawei
The United States and China are in the midst of a tech war, and Europe's caught dead center. In its push to stem Beijing's expanding global influence, Washington has pressured its European allies to sever their ties with Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, which it accuses of being a Trojan horse for Beijing's government to spy on other countries. But while some members of the European Union have been more receptive to U.S. pressure, none so far have succumbed fully to the United States' plea to ban Huawei from participating in the development of their 5G networks. That's not to say EU countries haven't taken heed of Washington's concerns about the Chinese company, or that U.S. accusations haven't marred Huawei's reputation among European consumers and companies. But Huawei's already sizable presence in EU markets -- combined with its expertise in the 5G space -- will make it a tempting option for European

What Does the New Qualcomm Ruling Mean for 5G and the U.S.-China Tech War?
In what could become a landmark case, a U.S. district judge on May 21 sided with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission against Qualcomm over its licensing prices. Judge Lucy Koh said that the San Diego-based telecommunications innovator broke U.S. antitrust law by "strangling competition" in the semiconductor chip industry and using its position as a key patent holder to demand unreasonably high licensing fees. Qualcomm will almost certainly appeal the ruling to a higher court, but if it stands, Koh's decision will hit at the heart of Qualcomm's business model, weakening the company at a time when it is in a heated competition with Chinese tech developers.

European Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager gives a press conference explaining the commission's antitrust case against Google.
The U.S. Trusts in Technology
A handful of tech companies -- Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft -- have become so ubiquitous in our daily lives that their devices and algorithms are nearly inescapable. Each of the companies has become a juggernaut in its corners of the market. And their role in geopolitics has steadily grown to the point that it's practically cliche anymore to say big data is the new oil. The comparison is apt, though. As it was for oil companies before them -- and for steel companies before that -- the growth of tech firms, and the effective monopolies they've established in certain areas, are concerns that Washington will eventually have to address. The only questions are when and how.

The Problem With Judging the Speaker, Not the Statement
The Problem With Judging the Speaker, Not the Statement
We are all subject to a common fallacy: Out of ignorance or sloth, we prefer to judge the speaker rather than the statement; that way we don't have to educate ourselves about the economic impact of a balanced budget amendment, or the effect of trade agreements on the growth of the economy, or the complexities of a nonproliferation agreement. Instead, we form a general assessment of the person making the claim and by this means evaluate the truth of that claim.
