Cincuenta años después del discurso de despedida de Eisenhower, analizamos el libro "Los profetas de la guerra: Lockheed Martin y la creación del complejo industrial-militar"


Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

Esta semana se conmemora el 50º aniversario del famoso discurso de despedida a la nación del presidente Dwight D. Eisenhower, en el que advertía del surgimiento de un “complejo militar-industrial”. Hablamos con William Hartung, director de Arms and Security Initiative en la New America Foundation, que se dedica a estudiar el surgimiento del complejo industrial-militar a través de la historia de la mayor empresa armamentística de la nación, Lockheed Martin. El nuevo libro de Hartung se titula "Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex" (Los profetas de la guerra: Lockheed Martin y la creación del complejo industrial-militar).
