Bombs Versus Budgets: Prophets of War and The Future of Military Spending
The New School (Orozco Room, 7th Fl., 66 W. 12th St., Manhattan)
Free, RSVP required
The deficit reduction fever sweeping Washington could force the first real reductions in Pentagon spending in over a decade, but companies like Boeing and Lockheed Martin are fighting tooth and nail to keep that from happening. Is this a short-term battle or an historic turning point for defense spending? Join David Gold of The New School’s Graduate Program in International Affairs and William D. Hartung of the Center for International Policy for a discussion of the prospects of defense cuts in an age of austerity. The discussion will be moderated by Hannah Gurman of the Gallatin School for Individualized Study at New York University.
