Guns and Butter:  The Economics of Politics

Guns and Butter investigates the relationships among economics, politics, militarism and society. Maintaining a radical perspective in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, Guns and Butter reports on who wins and who loses when the economic resources of civil society are diverted toward global corporatization, war, and the furtherance of a national/global security state.
