If we had better education in math, we could have avoided a lot of trouble

If we had more understanding of dynamical systems and fractals, we might have anticipated the 2008 financial crisis. The trillions of dollars that we used to save the banks could have been spent for something useful. For example, for education in mathematics. Napoleon knew it:

"The advancement and perfection of mathematics are intimately connected with the prosperity of the state."

Stanislaw Lec mayhave meant something similar:

"I don't agree with mathematics. The sum total of zeros is a frightening figure."
