Oh yeah.  Government tilting the playing field has worked so especially 
well to date.  It has produced such super abundant societies with huge 
surpluses that we should obviously do much more of it.  If the 
government had not stole so much  that the dollar is now worth 3 cents 
compared to when the Federal Reserve started then there would very 
likely be much much more money chasing physicists and other specialties 
than there is today.
