National Security Lecture Series at DMGS

The Daniel Morgan Graduate School Lecture Series is specifically designed to bring together speakers with divergent opinions on national security with the goal of enabling the public to engage in robust and informed discussions. It has hosted some of the most distinguished and influential leaders, thinkers, and practitioners of the national security community. These members of the national security community have provided our students, faculty, and guests with first-rate analysis of some of the most pressing challenges of our time. Daniel Morgan Graduate School will continue to host speakers who can help prepare the next generation of leaders, scholars and, practitioners to develop actionable solutions to global and domestic security challenges.

Summary:

On September 26, the Daniel Morgan Graduate School (DMGS) chapter of the Alexander Hamilton Society was proud to host a special discussion of the United States military-industrial complex featuring two of the nation’s preeminent scholars on national security: Dr. James Carafano and Dr. Christopher Preble. Carafano and Preble discussed the efficacy of various military policies, what amount of military spending is adequate, and which global conflicts directly impinge on U.S. national security.

Watch the full discussion below to hear Carafano and Preble’s answers to the question of whether or not the United States military-industrial complex and our huge expenditure on the armed forces make us a safer, freer, more prosperous society.
