Maybe we can woo these “Quants” into investing/budgeting for government. Do we have enough Bill James/quant types working for us? Heck, if it works in the private sector… Alas, the pay and pension benefits aren’t that good in the gov’mint.Not the government. Please no. They'd further screw it up. I'd rather hand 'em bang-for-the-buck grants for research conducted in their moms' basements.
