Let's use open source technology to fix the financial industry! Large financial institutions caused the Great Recession, but regulators have not reformed them. Before the next crisis hits, let's create a suite of open source financial models and feed them with big data. We can use these technologies to figure out which assets are risky and which aren't. Rather than wait for top down financial reform from Washington DC, we can do it from the group up.
