Paying for thinking, setting the right context

A particularly good episode of The Weeds that touches on:

  • How analysis is funded, via think tank funding. Relevant to the tech industry analyst market.
  • And then setting the context for analysis and how that can make all the difference in how “facts” are viewed – the Trump supporter example.

This framing is why I like data, surveys, and facts above unicorn pronouncements of what works. It puts some limits on Halo Effect error.
