China's "Made in China 2025" plan involves more than just pulling up its own bootstraps through fair and above-board means. China engages in egregious “innovation mercantilism,” including massive tech subsidies and forced tech transfer, all designed to have China replace America as the global tech leader. In an American Interest article with Admiral Dennis Blair, Rob Atkinson argues that it’s time for America to rise to the challenge by developing its own “Invented and Made in America 2028” plan to maintain competitive advantage advanced technology industries that are most critical to U.S. economic and national security.
