December 15, 2010, 12:00 - 2:00 PM - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
Cropsey, Hill, Holden, and Donnelly
Critics claim that the defense procurement process is inefficient: it often places too much emphasis on the lowest cost and hampers innovation in the defense sector. In the current budget climate, with significant calls for defense budget reductions, reforming defense spending may be counterproductive. Should short-term cost savings drive defense reform or should defense policy reformers seek a broader overhaul that might incorporate effectiveness standards for equipment and new technologies, including combat effectiveness, portability, and resilience?
Hudson Institute was pleased to host a panel discussion of these significant issues. Panelists included General Thomas Hill (ret.), former commander of the U.S. Southern Command; Captain Tim Holden (ret), former Navy SEAL; and Thomas Donnelly, Resident Fellow and Director, Center for Defense Studies, AEI. Seth Cropsey, a Hudson Institute Senior Fellow and former
Deputy Undersecretary of the Navy, moderated the discussion.
