Intellectual Capital: Arnie Barnett finds safety in numbers

Widely considered the nation's leading expert on aviation safety, Arnie Barnett uses his background in applied math to help conquer his own fear of flying. He calms himself -- and sometimes even fellow passengers -- during turbulence by recalling statistics on crash probability. A firm believer that math should be accessible to his students and can be applied to almost any problem, Arnie's passion for math is infectious. In this podcast, Arnie talks about his ideas for a new approach to the Electoral College and his constant vigilance against skewed statistics.

Air Safety: Nothing But Blue Skies?

Arnold Barnett returns with new insights into aviation and aviation safety, and remains remarkably consistent in his quite sunny assessment of the current state of aviation safety -- even after a recent string of air accidents.

Two More Things to Worry About

MIT Sloan Professor Arnie Barnett addresses improvements to the U.S. Electoral College and aviation safety as part of Back to the Classroom at Reunion 2008.

Student Stories: Kristen Oldenburger

Kristen Oldenburger is interested in the business of flying, particularly in how to keep an airline aloft in a rather competitive climate. Up to this point, however, she's done most of her work at ground level, for the FAA, the National Transportation Safety Bureau, and a few startup airlines. Recent treks to Australia and the United Arab Emirates have given a global slant to her travel industry knowledge, as well as the opportunity to visit the Great Barrier Reef, and she's looking to her summer internship with Morgan Stanley to provide a better understanding of the management side of transportation. In the rare moments her thoughts aren't on the sky, Kristin can be found on the ice, competing as part of an award-winning synchronized skating team. Correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate sat down with Kristin to discuss her ideas on the future of the aviation industry, witnessing New Year's Eve fireworks over the Sydney Harbor, and her plans for learning to fly.
