Description

Upon leaving the White House in 1961, President Eisenhower famously warned the nation about the dangers of the "military-industrial complex." Goodman's talk will outline the destabilizing effects of a national economy based on open-ended military spending as well as the impact of two losing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. On the basis of his experience with the CIA and the Department of Defense, Goodman will analyze the national security blunders of the past 25 years and provide a much-needed vision for recalibrating our foreign and national security policies.
