Four Percent for Freedom: The Need to Invest More in Defense provides the rationale for sensible spending on defense; illustrates the dire consequences of inadequate funding for supporting our troops and promoting America's national interests; and lays out the policy challenges that have to be overcome to achieve the bipartisan consensus that will be needed in the next decade. It is a call to action to Congress and future administrations that they must heed to help keep America safe, free, and prosperous in the 21st century.
