Blindly Downsizing, Or Optimally Re-Directing Continuous National Growth? What's It Gonna Be?

Commentary by Roger Erickson

Business Board: DOD Should Establish Downsizing Team To Cut Costs

Oversimplistic, and missing the bigger point?

"To deal with tough economic times, the Pentagon should establish a new semi-independent team to develop a detailed downsizing plan for how to aggressively cut costs, according to a Defense Business Board task force."

Should? Did they say SHOULD?

Why not go for NOT-BROKE? Form a public-initiative group to focus on expanding and optimally directing fiat, not on arbitrarily shrinking both net cultural goals AND net public-initiative?
