Economists for Peace and Security

This Tuesday’s featured partner is Economists for Peace and Security, an international network of thirteen affiliated organizations promoting economic analysis and appropriate action for peace, security and the world economy. They work locally, regionally and internationally to to promote non-military solutions to world challenges, and to effect policy changes that can build a more just and peaceful future.

Of particular interest is their monthly e-newsletter, NewsNotes, which in addition to including information on current projects, announcements of upcoming events and publications, and listings of funding and employment opportunities, it also includes an action corner and updates on their member’s activities as well.

The March 2011 edition included a 19 point plan for reducing military spending by almost 7 trillion over the next nine years. And it is written by two libertarians, proving that it is not only liberals who are appalled by the defense budget!
