Economic principles and incentives: structure, management, and funding of agricultural research in the United States



Economic principles and incentives: structure, management, and funding of agricultural research in the United States



American Journal of Agricultural Economics 74(5): 1101-1108



This paper examines the response of US public agricultural research, and the land grant system in particular, to public pressure, and argues that current directions will ultimately exacerbate public concerns. Inappropriate use of research priorities is leading to greater power struggles, micro-level funding instability, high research transaction costs, reduced perspective and creativity, and obstruction of the modern organization of science as applied to agriculture.
