[SOLVED] How Much Government Funding And Control Over Science Fields? How government control is over the all science fields in countries like Canada, USA, and Britain? How about in the East like South Korea and Japan? How much control and funding? Do you think government controlling the science field as well as funding it is more efficient than private research? In general most scientists I have read about do not care much for money and only want to research and learn. Still, do you think the competition of the free market in science field is needed for top quality science work or do scientists work the same with or without free market competition (same competition)? If you think government control and/or government funding is better and why do you think this?
