Khosla: US, China Likely to Wage 'Techno-Economic War'

Vinod Khosla, whose investments in US technology made him a billionaire, predicts the country will soon be at a “techno-economic war” with China lasting two decades.

The conflict will pit businesses shaped by each nation’s value systems — one inspired by democracy and the other by communism — against one another, Khosla said in an interview on Bloomberg Wealth With David Rubenstein. Khosla sees tech investors playing an important role in deciding which country’s companies will succeed.
