Summary Sentence:

Dr. Boston speaks about funding for research

Full Summary:

Will research on ants help the economy or just pay the researchers? Economics Professor Thomas D. Boston responded, "If we're talking about repairing and rebuilding and constructing projects, then that multiplier for those kinds of projects is much larger. If, on the other hand, you're engaged in basic scientific research, then that multiplier is much lower because you're not doing as much direct spending immediately."
