"Wisconn Valley?" That's what Gov. Scott Walker is calling the area in southeast Wisconsin where the Foxconn plant wants to locate.
Comparing China's Foxconn project to the homegrown U.S. innovations that transformed Silicon Valley is an insult.
Foxconn is a contract manufacturer that assembles products as cheaply as possible for tech innovators who would be wasting their time producing them when they could be designing something new.
Wisconsin should stop kidding itself. It isn't competing with Ohio or Pennsylvania. It's competing with Vietnam and Bangladesh.
