MIT Study: Military Spending Creates Fewer Jobs Than Progressive Programs
Submitted by Obweon
Contrary to conservative talking points, money spent on progressive domestic programs creates more jobs than military spending.
The study’s authors, economists Robert Pollin and Heidi Garret-Peltier of the Political Economy Research Institute, used statistics from the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and other sources to deduce how many jobs are created by public spending in various arenas. Among them, military spending was the lowest, creating fewer jobs per billion dollars spent than even consumer-oriented tax cuts.Click here for reuse options!
