How Much Should We Spend on Science?

Press is a vice-chair of the U.S. President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technologyand one of the co-authors of “Transformation and Opportunity,” a report to the president about the future of basic science and research funding in the United States.

In an op-ed published this month in Science Magazine, Press argues that the public deserves far more credit than it gets from politicians for its appreciation of the long-term benefits of funding scientific research.
