What do people think about the shift from basic research and research
driven by academic interest, to that driven by industrial needs? 

Do real scientists really believe that arguments made in the policy arena
to benefit industry are "good science" or are they just partial bits of
"good science" which lead one to a given conclusion that benefits the
industry? A conclusion that would differ if the other bits of "good
science" which are equally relevant but don't benefit the industry were
also considered.
