Apparently, Terence Kealey wrote a book called The Economic Laws of Scientific Research. It explains the relationship between government funding and science from a free-market perspective. I haven't found a link to the book online for free yet, but this claims to extract all the main arguments out:

I read the short summary and I'm not too hot about the historicism used, but I suppose it's useful to combat claims of "the market has not historically funded science."
