Reply to "Is the bold grammatical?"

What if I just did the bold?

The financial sector’s “salaries and bonuses” attract “many of our country’s best young mathematicians and physicists”. These talented graduates’ education “has been paid for mostly by either government funds or university endowments”, but these talented minds—who have been educated on the taxpayer dime—engage in financial-sector activity that adds “little to the financial system’s ability to perform any of its economic functions”.

And I might've made an error; is the bold taxpayer-funded or am I wrong about that?
