15 Ways to Rethink the Federal Budget—Part I: Budgeting for a Modern Military

On February 22, The Hamilton Project at Brookings hosted a forum and released new proposals on ways to create greater efficiency in the U.S. defense budget while maintaining our national security.

Retired four-star Admiral Gary Roughead, a former chief of Naval Operations, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Cindy Williams, a former assistant director of the Congressional Budget Office, will offer two new proposals for reducing future defense budgets. The authors will be joined by MIT Professor John Deutch, former Undersecretary for Defense Michèle Flournoy, and former Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sam Nunn (D-Ga.) for a roundtable discussion on the new proposals, and a broader discussion around the dynamics of ongoing defense budget negotiations.  Following the roundtable, the panelists will take audience questions.

This forum kicked off a two-part series, during which The Hamilton Project will inject 15 specific, independent ideas into long-standing debates over addressing the federal budget deficit.  The second event will be held on February 26 in Washington, DC.
