Susan Eisenhower & Panel 1:
Monday, January 17th marks the 50th Anniversary of President Dwight Eisenhower’s Farewell Address in which he spoke to Americans about the “Military-Industrial Complex.” The Cato Institute hosted a discussion about that speech and whether the former president's warnings have been heeded. In the first portion, you hear from President Eisenhower's granddaughter Susan Eisenhower. After her remarks, a panel of former government officials looks at relations between the civilian sector and the military, and how that’s changed since President Eisenhower’s time.
In this panel, scholars look at the military-industrial complex today and how it has changed since President Eisenhower’s time.
