I encourage all of you to watch this video on the economics of science.
I would have previously considered myself against the government funding science as it distorts the market and crowds out private science. But I have never heard such relentless, eloquent, and fascinating arguments against government funded science, ever.
From Thomas Woods' Facebook:
"The feed-at-the-government-trough scientific establishment hates a truth-teller like Terence Kealey, who makes mincemeat of every argument you've ever heard for government science funding."
