However, I’ve not directly addressed the question of how these dollars should be allocated. As one of the authors of the important Evans-Stoddart population field model said in their 2003 AJPH article (Consuming Research, Producing Policy?), "redirecting resources means redirecting someone’s income…most students of population health cannot confidently answer the question…well, where would you put the money?"
