[Insert "budgetary black hole" joke here.]
How about some quantum accounting?
I did not know that. Who would be some other current or past world leaders with advanced degrees in a science?
Goodluck Jonathan (awesome name), president of Nigeria, has a Ph.D. in Zoology.
Thatcher was a chemist before entering politics.
Working on ice cream, of all things – I think she got a patent on something for making cold ice cream softer or some such.

Yes, and her husband is a world renown chemistry professor.

Thank you for taking the BB Rorschach test. Your results are in the mail.

He’s got a Brilliant plan to generate new revenue in the first quarter of his administration
Not the first time a quantum physics/chemistry-type jumped ship to Economics. Koopmans derived his eponymous theory about electron orbital energies and ionization potentials, turned 24, then entered economics, eventually winning the 1975 Nobel Prize in the field.
Nobel prize my ass, bankers patting their pet economists on the back is what it is.
