Block TikTok? The U.S. Response to Chinese Apps
Date: Jul. 28, 2020
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
TikTok is the latest Chinese app to take off in the United States. However, there are concerns that China’s government could be using the app to surveil Americans. Critics argue that the specter of this surveillance is enough to boycott or even impose an outright ban on the app. Others suggest that the app does not pose such a grave risk and that policymakers should allow the marketplace to balance the potential risks and tradeoffs. Should the government regulate the app market? Can any apps from China be trusted?
