Semiconductor Chip Shortage

George Calhoun.png

Understand the ramifications of the Semiconductor chip shortage with George Calhoun, professor at the Stevens Institute of Technology.

It’s in the news: “Semiconductors are the new oil.” The cliché is suddenly everywhere – and probably because chips are suddenly in short supply. We took oil for granted until the shortages in the ’70s made it “strategic.” Now it’s happening with semiconductors.

This is how George Calhoun begins his four-part series in Forbes focused on the semiconductor industry. Calhoun’s background is in the high-tech segment of the wireless technology industry, and was the former CEO and Chairman of Illinois Superconductor Corporation. He is currently at the Stevens Institute of Technology, where he created and oversees several programs in Quantitative Finance and related fields.

George joins us today to help us understand what the future holds for the semiconductor industry.
