Stimulus Outcomes

So, with one FY of ARRA/stimulus funding behind us, where and how is it going? Nature has an economical infographic showing how 7 federal agencies are spending their R&D stimulus dollars and also includes brief commentaries by 6 experts on “what concerns them most about the US stimulus spending and … ways to ensure that it benefits research and society in the long term.” Many touch on the problems of feast-famine cycles in research funding and how these hit young researchers particularly hard. I suspect Michael Teitelbaum (Sloan Foundation)’s essay on “Incentives for universities do not promote sustainable behavior” will resonate with many regular readers of this blog.
