Applying NASA Budget Smarts on Wall Street?

NASA Dude Takes On Wall Street Mess, FreeSpace

"Does it take a rocket scientist to fix the country's world's financial mess? Well, maybe ... (hopefully!) Neel Kashkari, 35, has a new title on his resume: Interim Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Financial Stability. He was appointed to the job yesterday by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, who is either Dr. Evil or Santa Claus. I can't decide which. One of Kashkari's first jobs was with NASA contractor TRW in Redondo Beach, Calif., where he develop technology for a science missions including the James Webb Space Telescope. I hope it's not a bad sign that a diminutive version of the observatory Kashkari worked on is still on the ground, with launch scheduled for three years later than its original 2010 date."
