Letting the nrc do its job though is merely a step in

Letting the NRC do its job, though, is merely a step in the right direction. A long-term solution will require a more comprehensive reform effort. Instead of continuing to rely on the federal government, we must develop a system whereby waste producers are given more responsibility for managing their own waste. Doing so would introduce the market forces that have been absent from America's current approach to nuclear waste management. It will be these market forces that ultimately will give the United States an economically rational and thus sustainable nuclear waste management solution. If the U.S. is truly at the threshold of a nuclear renaissance, then such an approach to waste management could give rise to a robust nuclear waste management services marketplace - which should include a repository at Yucca Mountain. The president's choice to close Yucca Mountain isn't just wasting taxpayer and ratepayer dollars. It's wasting valuable time - and missing a chance to truly reform the way we handle nuclear energy in this country.
Sarah - good morning. From your post it sounds like the board of directors from Loss Aversion and should include fewer medical/agricultural specialists and more business owners/accountants. In fairness, however I believe that many were caught unaware by the current economic downturn which affected your hospitals cash on hand and the board’s ability to proceed with the needed expansion. In addition, you also made an interest point about considering "staff satisfaction" which I agree, while implicit, should be considered as a significant and relevant benefit in business decision making.
