Description

The DMGS Chapter of the Alexander Hamilton Society Presents

Debating the Military-Industrial Complex: A Cost-Benefit Analysis

Much time is spent in the defense and national security community debating the efficacy of certain policies, what amount of military spending is adequate, and which global conflicts directly impinge on US national security. But how often do those in government, the military, and defense contractors ask: is it all worth it? Does the United States military-industrial complex and our huge expenditure on the armed forces make us a safer, freer, more prosperous society on balance? Please join us for this discussion, hosted by the Alexander Hamilton Society, featuring two of the nation’s preeminent scholars on national security. Refreshments will be provided.

Speakers:
Dr James Carafano- DMGS Board of Advisors and Adjunct Professor
Dr. Carafano is the Vice President of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Center for National Security and Foreign Policy at the Heritage Foundation. He holds a Masters and Ph.D from Georgetown University and retired from the United States Army as a Lieutenant Colonel after 25 years of service.

Dr. Christopher Preble- Hamilton Scholar
Dr. Preble is the Vice President for Defense and Foreign Policy Studies at the Cato Institute. He is the author of The Power Problem: How American Military Dominance Makes Us Less Prosperous, Less Safe, and Less Free. He holds a PhD in History from Temple University and was a commissioned officer in the United States Navy from 1990-1993

Moderator – Mr. Cameron Keyani, President of the DMGS Chapter of the Alexander Hamilton Society
