Incorporate he Solar System into our Economic Sphere

The President's Science Advisor gave an outstanding speech ( http://www.ostp.gov/html/jhmGoddardSymp03-15-06Release.pdf ) laying out a very hopeful vision of the exploration program, just one of the gems is:

As I see it, questions about the vision boil down to whether we want to incorporate the Solar System in our economic sphere, or not. Our national policy, declared by President Bush and endorsed by Congress last December in the NASA authorization act, affirms that, "The fundamental goal of this vision is to advance U.S. scientific, security, and economic interests through a robust space exploration program." So at least for now the question has been decided in the affirmative.
