How should science be funded?

EducationGuardian reports on a new book called 'Sex, Science and Profits by Terence Kealey, vice-chancellor of the private Buckingham Unversity. In it, Kealey puts the view forward that 'science is not a public good to be funded, but the evolved product of the competitive, selfish, property-and-sex obsessed instincts that make us human', adding that there are both individuals and companies queuing up to invest in all kinds of science.
