43] – How
Much Is Enough? Reining in Runaway Pentagon Spending is to be discussed on
Thurs., June 16 at noon ET, hosted by the Quincy Institute email@example.com. The Biden administration’s proposal for
Fiscal Year 2023 of $813 billion for the military is far higher than the peaks
of the Korean or Vietnam Wars, and is well over $100 billion more than at the
height of the Cold War. And if hawks in Congress have their way, these
staggering figures could be increased by an additional $50 to $100 billion.
This Quincy Institute panel will analyze the factors behind overspending on the
Pentagon and propose reforms that can make America and the world safer at a
considerably lower cost. The discussion will feature Gordon Adams,
Distinguished Non-Resident Fellow at the Quincy Institute; Shailly Gupta
Barnes, Policy Director, Kairos Center and the Poor People’s Campaign;
and Julia Gledhill, analyst at the Project on Government Oversight.
QI’s William Hartung will moderate. Register at
