Silicon Valley’s China Paradox


Since China’s first Internet connections in the 1990s, the relationship between China and Silicon Valley has moved through four phases—dependence, competition, segmentation and synergy.

Matt Sheehan, former China correspondent for The Huffington Post and The WorldPost, argues that the relationship has arrived at a counter-intuitive new equilibrium, one in which the flows of talent, money and ideas between the two ecosystems are at an all-time high, even while companies and products remain stubbornly confined to their own markets. Sheehan presents the implications of this new equilibrium for companies, policymakers and global innovation.
