Cowen on Prizes Vs. Grants

Michael Giberson

As a follow-up to yesterday’s note on prizes vs. grants, George Mason University economist and blogger Tyler Cowen spoke on the topic at Google’s New York City office. Cowen was speaking the day after the “Google Lunar X Prize” was announced, and carried into the lecture a clipping of the story from the New York Times.
