The average American consumes thirty-four gigabytes of data each day. That's the equivalent of about 100,000 words both read and heard. Tolstoy's book, WAR AND PEACE, which is approximately 1,500 pages, contains roughly 150,000 words. So every day and a half, we're reading or hearing the equivalent of a 1,500 page book. Most of this happens in front of screens watching TV content. Second is radio, and third computers -- and for computers, it's mostly video games. What a relief. No longer am I going to fret about memory loss. A 1,500 page book every day and a half is pretty good.

Everyday consumer spending will be included. The dialogue may not present solutions, but certainly will present alternatives in an entertaining and colorful way with experts in their respective fields.
