On January 18, the Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes and AAAS co-sponsored a panel discussion in Washington, D.C., commemorating the 50th anniversary of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s farewell address. Eisenhower's speech is mainly remembered for his warning of the perils of a "military-industrial complex." CSPO faculty members and authors Dan Sarewitz and G. Pascal Zachary spoke, along with author and journalist Daniel S. Greenberg and journalist and former science analyst for the GAO William Lanouette. The panel was moderated by Steve Lagerfeld, editor of The Wilson Quarterly. You can see the relevant portion of Eisenhower’s address on YouTube (youtube.com/watch?v=VtIZBcWBcis)
