"There is an interesting controversy heating up over Florida State University’s deal with the Charles Koch Foundation to provide additional economics positions but only with the foundation's approval, in order to get access to additional funding at a time when Florida is substantially reducing economic aid to higher education. The foundation is not simply making a grant, it is demanding, and receiving, permission to exercise on going veto power over hires made with the grant. I find myself sympathetic to both sides of this controversy -- and also critical of both sides." (05/12/11)
