It could be pointed out that federal US investment in basic research is scheduled to be $127 billion for the 2004 (if you include all R&D spending by the government and not subsidies), and that the major industrial R&D companies, like Lucent Technologies wasted most of their resources on bad financial or marketing deals, or on paying their chief exec's too much money. Their solution has been to cut R&D (Bell Labs is a shadow of its former self). The only companies not in a race to the bottom (like Apple and Microsoft) are the ones who continue to invest in basic research.
