"The Secret About Jobs Military Contractors Don't Want You to Know"

From Jennifer Doak, Foreign Policy In Focus:
A new report "shows that the federal government could generate thousands more jobs, both directly and indirectly, by focusing spending on health care, education, or clean energy rather than on defense."
According to the updated UMass report: "Channeling funds into clean energy, health care, and education in an effective way will therefore create significantly greater opportunities for decent employment throughout the U.S. economy than spending the same amount of funds with the military."
