Specifically he was talking about the most cost effective chips being a shrinking in size, because the cost of processing was pretty much constant per area of wafer.

That hasn't been true for the past few iterations because the cost of euv fabs and the time taken to multiple pass layering

The justification for euv scale is speed, power consumption and the need to pack a super computer into a phone rather than Moore's law making smaller chips cheaper
