Government research grants are a good example. Government either foots the bill or splits it with a private company for say medical research. If it fails, the government loses the money but if it succeeds and is viable then the private sector comes in and buys whatever it is knowing itís probably going to be a success and make money.

If the private sector didnít have the government playing this role theyíd have to put up and risk their own capital, leading to many more losses and probably companies failing all the time when things donít pan out. This way, the private sector doesnít take the highest risks, the government does.

So, is this capitalism? And does the private sector, or government get the credit for all these inventions and breakthroughs?

This town is nuts, my kind of place. I don't never ever want to leave....
