Nanotechnology funding has risen to more than $10 billion in 2004, double its size in 2003. Corporate and private funding grew by 160%, while government funding grew by 37%. Japan's government spent $4 billion, while the U.S. spent about 3.4 billion. By 2008, says Stacy Lawrence, the nano industry could touch $100 billion in products. People, however, are largely uninformed, and the less informed, the more fearful.
