Inhaltsangabe: Whatever happened to the post–Cold War “peace dividend?? Why does military spending continue to escape federal budget reductions? Why, despite the nearly universal desire to reduce government waste and budget deficits, is the United States still saddled with a costly, bloated military-industrial complex? The answer, says Sanford Gottlieb, is a debilitating dependence of a key sector of the American economy on defense jobs and profits.Based on hundreds of interviews with defense contractors, union representatives, members of Congress, state and federal officials, lobbyists, economic development professionals, and local activists, Defense Addiction explains how these groups and individuals cope with defense dependence, competition for federal funds, and budget and job cuts—painting a sobering picture of how this addiction hampers the nation?s ability to deal effectively with a host of domestic and global problems.Providing guidance to companies and communities struggling to break free in the face of inadequate government policies, Gottlieb?s engaging and jargon-free volume points to civilian public investments, reduced military spending, strengthened international peacekeeping, and other measures that could help our country kick the habit.
