The program is expected to cost billions, but to allay the negative reaction to the price tag Obama also pointed out the huge return on investment the economy saw with similar research. “Every dollar we invested to map the human genome returned $140 to our economy — every dollar, ” said the President. This refers to a study done by the federal government that said the $3.8 billion invested in the Human Genome Project since 1990 saw a return of $800 billion.
Several scientists have already said they are involved in planning the project, which is titled the Brain Activity Map, and the Office of Science and Technology Policy will be organizing the project. It is expected to be included in President Obama’s budget proposal in March of this year, but considering what a super-good job Congress does of passing things, it’s certainly not a guarantee that it will make the final budget and be funded.

The conversion from price listings in dollars to listings in shekels should have occurred in Israel long ago. That it did not was mainly due to habit, which can be hard to change. People simply became used to certain prices being set in dollars. It was a fact of life.
Habits play an important part in maintaining stability in economic systems. Thus without a shock that results in heavy losses for at least some, habits are difficult to change. But there have been plenty of losses. This week we learned that the price Tnuva's sellers (the kibbutzim and moshavim) received for the company was NIS 330...
