Corrupting Grants?

May 10, 2012

Bruce Charlton discusses how grant chasing can bias and corrupt science.  There was a similar thought expressed by Jerry Coyne that I linked below, and there are similar thoughts about how funding can distort in the post I just published previously (in that case the problem with bioscience industry, where there is a strong profit motive).

I think I got this link from Seth Robert’s blog.

But, makes me think of Tim Harford’s book Adapt (and Nassim Taleb’s thought in the Black Swan).  There need to be room for failure.
