Hard Choices: Responsible Defense in an Age of Austerity

The Budget Control Act of 2011 has set the government on a path to dramatically reduce spending over the next decade, and a congressional “super committee” is now seeking to trim spending by more than $1 trillion beyond the cuts already enacted this year. As additional cuts are made, we must ask: How can the United States responsibly and effectively maximize its security in this era of growing fiscal austerity?  

On October 7, 2011, Gordon Adams will be a panelist in a Center for a New American Security book launch event on Hard Choices: Responsible Defense in an Age of Austerity,  featuring a discussion with the report authors, Dr. Adams, and Tom Donnelly, Resident Fellow and Director of the Center for Defense Studies at the American Enterprise Institute.
