In yours and Dr. Bussard's estimation; if properly funded, how much money and how long would it take to either achieve breakeven or to show conslusively that IEC fusion will not work?

I read your article in Infinite Magazine and am aware that the idea is to replace the wire grid with some sort of electromagnetic confinement of the electrons.Are there any funded attempts to resolve this issues right now?
