Get the quote right. Lyndon Johnson said: "There are three kinds of lies. Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics."

Even if you assume the $12 billion figure, the 200,000 job figure is ridiculous. A modern manufacturing facility translates into something more like a million dollars in sales per worker, not $60,000 ($12b/200k).

Well, I will try and keep people honest and call them on it when I see blatant misuse of information.

Trust no one and verify all data. Truth is more subjective than it used to be. SPIN is the name of the game and everyone uses statistics to justify their miss-information. Pity really, we used to be able to trust journalist, but it seems they have developed a tremendous credibility issue. Josef Goebbels would be proud of the way our news media have become propaganda vehicles for all parties. I stopped watching network news years ago. Too depressing.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
