Funding of science / Liberal cities are worse ?

Two interesting studies for you to look at :

1. Clifford F. Thies, back in September, posted an article on proving that cities where people vote liberal the most are also cities with the most criminality, unemployment, and population exodus. Here is the proof.

Being an anarchist, I don't think this proves anything except that both liberalism and conservatism are bankrupt belief systems in ways that are perhaps more different than supposed.

2. A new study on private and public funding of science proves that private funding reaps more important scientific papers than public funding. Tyler Cowen argues that this probably means a lot less than one might think, but it's still an interesting and novel indictment of government.
