12:04 am - Call for Big Think ideas

Marginal Revolution is one of my favorite blogs. Alex Tabarrok, one of the contributors, asks:

President Bush reputedly asked his big-think guys to come up with a new vision to unify and motivate the nation and they came up with ... a moon base? It's so been there, done that. Going to the moon was one of the greatest accomplishments of mankind but I am not inspired by imitation. Are you?

Hence, I issue this challenge to the blogosphere. What's your big-think idea to unify, motivate and inspire the nation? A moon-base will cost on the order of 200 billion so let's economize and say that the idea should cost 100 billion or less - a better idea and 100 billion to spare! Ideally, the idea should be mostly free of politics and have a strong possibility of success given that the money is spent. Email me and I will post the best ideas with full credit.

(P.S. If you ever get to hear a lecture from Alex or take one of his classes, I highly recommend you take the opportunity. He's quite entertaining and informative. )
