The Economics of Science.
Over at “The Scholarly Kitchen” I found this review of Paula Stephan’s “How Economics Shapes Science”. From dabbling in behavioral economics (which really is psychology anyway, to be partisan), the incentives that shape behavior and the macro-outcomes are not always what they seem. The review lists some unintended consequences from changes in funding covered in the book. US based, of course, but there are unintended consequences from the economics everywhere.
