This article summarizes the results of the current funding cuts in research. It almost feels like Bush moved up North. Dozens of millions are being cut. My previous employer, the National Research Councilâ€”Canada’s largest research organizationâ€”was cut as well.Â
Fortunately, our wise government saw fit to compensate with more business degrees:
Â $17.5 millionÂ over three years to (…) to fund anÂ additional 400 masterâ€™s and 100 doctoral scholarships â€œfocused onÂ business-related degrees.â€Â
Summary: less funding for degrees in science, more funding for degrees in business.
