in re your 278:JL 10/5/78 Tax Credits.
It is a very good idea (and I mean that more than fatuously). Have you discussed it with Frank Press or Dick Atkinson?
But I think many companies will demand to keep their R and D close to the vest and worry about proprietary rights and secrets. But plainly a tax credit will bolster corporate philanthropic motives and may be the most effective where there is a commons in the public exploitation of new knowledge.
