Naval War College Releases "Economics and Security: Resourcing National Priorties"

The Naval War College (NWC) today released a monograph of the papers presented at a May workshop on Economics and Security: Resourcing National Priorities.

The monograph offers a very interesting view of national security issues and while the theme is economics, the papers are much broader. Panels included Economics and Security; Federal Budget: Resourcing National Priorities; Quadrennial Defense Review; Defense Budget and Risks; Land and Special Operations Forces; Air and Maritime Forces; and Strategic Nuclear, Space and Cyber Forces.

I was privileged to be the “space” speaker, and found it fascinating to learn about national security issues from the perspectives of the others. I highly recommend this monograph, which can be downloaded for free. This is the fifth William B. Ruger Chair workshop. Monographs from the previous seminars are available on the Ruger website. Dr. Richmond Lloyd currently holds the William D. Ruger Chair of National Security Economics at the NWC and sponsored the workshop.

Summer is over, so is transitioning its “Summer Reading List” on the left menu into a “Top Picks” reading list, and this will be added to it.
