Brave New Films usually does a good job, but here they just don’t connect the dots. This video spends all its time saying the DoD is in bed with the defense industry (this is news?) without substantively countering the industry claim (repeated over and over) that cutting defense spending will costs hundreds of thousands of jobs and raise unemployment 1%. The video closes with the phrase “job-killing defense spending,” without giving any of the good substantive evidence that defense spending is extremely inefficient in job creation. In the end, you’re left with simply a “they said / we say” sense of what the video was about, and a memory about “hundreds of thousands of jobs” and “increases in unemployment.”
