BFP Forum! Wed. July 27: New Cold War: The Surging US Military Budget& What We Can Do About It

July 27, 2022 @ 7:00 PM 8:00 PM

The military budget was already too high. Why is it getting so much worse?

Are conflicts with Russia and China being exaggerated?

Why are so many Democrats, including some progressives, supporting dramatic increases in the Pentagon budget, sometimes even more than Biden requested? Is it simply the Russian invasion of Ukraine?

What are proposed changes in funding for nuclear weapons?

How can grassroots groups play a useful role in responding to proposed $1.4 trillion in military expenditures?

Our speaker, Bill Hartung, will address these critical questions amidst our current political context. There will be time for Q&A following his remarks.

William “Bill” Hartung is a senior research fellow at the Quincy Institute.¬†Check out his recent article:¬†Fueling the Warfare State.
