As the government reopened after the October 2013 shutdown, and defense got a three month reprieve before sequestration would go into effect for 2014, Todd Harrison offered his forecast at what’s next for the defense budget.
In this report, Todd analyzed the FY14 budget, looked at the prospects for another sequester, and the key issues facing defense, including military compensation, base closures, modernization programs, and war-related funding. The report also discussed trends in the defense budget from prior drawdowns and offered a view for how the current drawdown may play out over the coming years.
