Three significant figures - huh.
14.2. The very precision of such a figure casts doubt on the whole prediction. The IOT will be a major fork in the road - nobody can seriously doubt that. But to pinpoint it to such a degree is almost silly. There are too many ifs, ands and buts, too many unknowns, too many things that can break in any number of directions. Assumption upon assumption upon assumption. It would be much more believable if they would have said, say, between $12 and $16 Trillion. I was briefly involved in the "prediction industry" at one time, and, yes, those who commission such surveys do demand decimal points. I wasn't high up enough in the food chain to know if they actually believe in them themselves.
