Let's put this Foxconn deposit in perspective

$60,000,000 is 1.5% of the $3,938,000,000 (and counting) payments and incentives promised to Foxconn.

Skin in the game: Foxconn makes $60 million deposit on what officials call 'historic day'.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 12/22/2017)

Most of the actions already taken involes securing sizeable payments and incentives from state, county, and local governments Foxconn, which has drawn criticism over announced projects elsewhere that didn't fully materialize, already has taken several actions indicating it is indeed serious about its plans to build the massive factory here.
