The problem with the military budget


Corporate Accountability is no stranger to the power and influence of the military industrial complex. Our work on the General Electric Boycott to end the corporation’s manufacturing of nuclear weapons parts sparked a major win for the nuclear nonproliferation movement and cemented our winning campaigning strategies.

In this most recent paper, we examine the inner workings of today’s military industrial complex in the United States, which now boasts a budget of more than $886 billion for military spending. We uncover where this funding, paid for by tax dollars, is going, and the deep financial ties between the weapons industry and elected officials.

We know that it doesn’t have to be this way. This paper provides a pathway toward a world where our governments actually keep us safe. We also offer recommendations for how we can take collective action, to hold this industry accountable and compel our government leaders to fund critical resources.
