Fiscal Cliff on Trial Verdict, Dave Pack

Fiscal Cliff on Trial Verdict, Dave Pack

Board member, renders his verdict of the fiscal cliff and its perpetrators, commenting, "In study after study, it has been shown that a billion dollars of U.S. spending on the military produces much fewer jobs than a billion dollars in spending almost anywhere else." He analyzed excessive military spending and cuts and conversions which can be made without decreasing national security while increasing employment.

The event, organized by AFSC and co-sponsored by  Jobs Now, UMKC Economics Club and National Lawyers Guild, Occupy KC, Move to Amend, and PeaceWorks KC, took place on Saturday, Dec. 1, at the University of Missouri, KCMO.
