Summary:Twenty-six million Americans depend on the defense budget for their livelihood. With the end of the Cold War, many defense workers are losing their jobs. Seymour Melman is chairman of the National Commission for Economic Conversion and Disarmament, which is studying ways to convert military spending to economic redevelopment. Melman discusses ways to convert military spending to peace time uses, as well as how the importation of foreign goods subsidizes the American economy.
