I agree with you Peter. The real factor is that there is a shortage of workers available at the salaries companies want to pay, with the possible exception of analog where there is such a limited number of people in the field.

The key indicator of a worker shortage would be lengthening lists of advertized jobs with increased salaries.

I saw that happen in the late 1990s boom.

I don't remember seeing it this millenium.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
