President Biden is preparing to sign an executive order, which will review America’s ability to get hold of certain things that it is currently struggling to achieve. Among the list are semiconductors, one of the main reasons behind the current shortage of PS5 (and graphics cards).

What CNBC reported earlier this month, chip shortages, caused by pandemic disruptions in global supply chains, are wreaking havoc around the world, from automakers to hardware companies like AMD and Qualcomm, and that’s reaching places like Sony and Nvidia. because you can’t build PlayStations and GeForce cards without semiconductors.

AP report The executive order says the review is aimed at “the fragility of vital supply chains” and will investigate whether, if a global situation makes it difficult for the United States to import the necessary components, the country must manufacture those things itself.

It should be noted that this is an order to initiate a revision, so as not to implement anything that it recommends. For all we know the president might get this review, let’s say building more stuff in America is a good idea, then don’t do anything about it. A bit like how promised checks for $ 2000 and neither has it.
