Liberty and Research and Development: Science Funding in a Free Society
Tibor R. Machan
Hoover Institution Press, 2002 - Business & Economics - 124 pages
The contributors to this volume explore the implications of government funding of scientific research and offer alternatives to the heavy reliance on government support that research and development (R&D) currently enjoys. Each author squarely confronts the problems arising from the idea that government funding of R&D is and ought to be the norm.
