    Re: Libertarianism in the time of Ebola

    Mapp got government funding. So did the Canadian company. Why didn't the private sector foot that bill?

    Re: Libertarianism in the time of Ebola

    Because the US government is in a budget crisis and has limited resources to fight minor threats to national security.

    Why hasn't the private sector invested in ebola research until recently?

    Until very recently most of the funding for R&D for Ebola treatments was coming from government (thanks Cheney!).

    Re: Libertarianism in the time of Ebola

    That sounds like a "big government" solution. And besides it might not evern work. Ebola is only "moderately sensitive to radiation" http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/lab-bio/res/psds-ftss/ebola-eng.php
