Moral of science
If scientists are part of a global community, does that mean there is a uniform pattern in the choices they make? The answer can be both yes and no, going by the results of a recent survey of Indian scientists. Unlike most of their fraternity in the us and Europe, an overwhelming 56 per cent scientists in the country prefer a mixed economy; this is consistent with their support for both government and private funding of science. Twenty one per cent of the respondents preferred the free market.
