Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellows Bryan Clark and Arthur Herman and guests the Honorable Ellen Lord and Dr. Jeffrey Nadaner for a discussion on the erosion of the U.S. defense industrial base and opportunities to restore America’s ability to innovate and manufacture systems vital to national security.

The United States has experienced dramatic deindustrialization over the past four decades, with serious consequences for the defense industrial base. As globalization shifted much of America’s manufacturing overseas, the capacity to produce ships, airplanes, and the hardware needed for sensors, networks, weapons, and critical infrastructure declined dramatically. Today, the supply chains U.S. armed forces depend on are brittle, and some of the essential components in U.S. military capabilities are produced in China—a key problem given the increasingly adversarial relationship between America and the PRC. A new report by the Honorable Ellen Lord and Dr. Jeffrey Nadaner proposes a strategy for the U.S. and its allies to expand their defense and commercial industrial capacity. Join Hudson Institute for this timely discussion.
